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.

Summer Family Funday

Our ‘oh, I do like to be beside the seaside’ family funday was so popular last year we just had to bring it back again this Summer!

Join us for a jam-packed afternoon filled with activities and games including Punch and Judy, bouncy castles, face painting, and much, much more.

Not only will there be lots of activities around the racecourse to keep the kids entertained but they’ll be able to watch exciting live-action horse racing right from the trackside! Head to the Parade Ring ahead of each race and watch the jockeys mount their horse and pick out which one you think will be a winner. Then, once each race is over make your way to the Winner’s Enclosure where you’ll be able to get closer to the winning horse and runner ups.
