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.

Warwick’s Charity Raceday in aid of Kissing It Better

Warwick Racecourse is wonderful place to be when spring is just around the corner. Why not bring the kids this Easter holiday, and enjoy a mid-week treat as under 18s can come racing for free when attending with a full paying adult.

The charity Kissing It Better focuses on the beneficial effects of local community and the difference that can be made to the care of patients and their carers within hospitals and care homes. Tackling the small things can have a fundamental effect on everyone involved in the health care sector and Kissing It Better have a number of ideas that make a ‘world of difference’.

Get an insider’s view of the track and its incredible history dating back over 300 years with Warwick’s Horses for Courses tour. Find out how if it wasn’t for the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694, there may not be any racing in the town at all. Discover why the 1810 Kings Plate winner, Trusty was not true to his name. Learn what world record The Chandler achieved in a race at Warwick before going to win the Grand National. Not only will you get a behind the scenes tour and learn what goes into making a day at the races happen, your host will provide you with tips straight from the horse’s mouth to assist in making your day a profitable one. This tour costs £5 in addition to an admission ticket.
