Volunteer today for racing charities!

Charities working across the sport are frequently in need of valuable support from volunteers – on an ongoing basis or just to support a particular event.

Volunteering is a great way to help the causes you support, and can even boost your CV and help you make new friendships.

Racing Reminiscence at Kelso

  • Date: 14th November
  • Time: 2.30pm – 4.30pm

Please join the Kelso Racecourse team for tea, biscuits and conversation at the racecourse during the afternoon on Thursday 14th November. Everyone is welcome, young and old. We’d especially like to meet anyone with memories of the racecourse or characters who were involved in horseracing in the Scottish Borders. We’ll have some memorabilia at the racecourse to share, but would be delighted to see more: old racecards, photographs or books.

Admission is free of charge and although booking is not necessary, an indication of possible attendance would help us to prepare the correct number of tea cups! Contact: Jonathan Garratt – – 01573 221 221 –
