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.

Global Godolphin Challenge benefits frontline charities

For the past five weeks, Godolphin employees worldwide have been running, walking, swimming, cycling or riding as many miles as they could to raise money for COVID-19 charities, and help keep everyone active and healthy.

The target was ambitious – the aim was to cover the number of miles connecting Godolphin locations across the world, a total of 28,300 miles starting and finishing in Dubai.

The Godolphin Winning Line Challenge ended on Friday, 26 June and not only did they meet the target, they managed to get all the way around the world again! The final mileage recorded by the teams in Australia, Dubai, Ireland, Japan, the UK and the US was an astounding 67,165.

Every member of staff who signed up donated and several thousand pounds will now be distributed between each region’s chosen charity.

Hugh Anderson, Managing Director of Godolphin UK and Dubai said: “While the primary aim of the Godolphin Winning Line Challenge was to raise money for Covid-19 charities in each of our regions, coming together as a team with a single aim was also very much at the heart of this.

“I never doubted that the team would rise to the challenge, but to surpass our goal by so far is absolutely fantastic and I am very proud of everyone who donated and took part.”

In the UK, staff raised money for the Newmarket Festival COVID-19 fund (https://www.gofundme.com/f/newmarket-covid19-community-fund), while in Ireland, funds will be divided between Friends of St Brigid’s Hospice (Kildare), St Francis Hospice (Blanchardstown) and South Tipperary Hospice Movement.
