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.

The ever inspirational Jack Lander has encouraged all in racing to take part in this year’s Racing Together Community Day, taking place on Friday 11th May.

In this special Racing Together video Jack challenges everyone to get involved and also tells of his latest fundraising adventure. Climbing Kilimanjaro in 2019, raising money for racing charities – Racing to School, The Injured Jockeys Fund, Racing Welfare and The Irish Injured Jockeys Fund.

Last week Kirstin McEvoy of The Jockey Club challenged racecourses to take part in the Racing Together Community Day via the Big Switch Off and this week Lander has gone one step further with asking all in racing to get involved.
