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.

Kelso offer helping hand to charities to showcase their work at Raceday on 18th September

Kelso is offering charities the chance to book a table in the Younger Grandstand for between eight and 12 guests for £45 per person, a near 50% discount compared with the normal package price.

Individual charities can sell this package to supporters at the normal price, offering the opportunity to raise up to £400 from a table of 10. Alternatively, the tables can be used to reward loyal supporters or to invite beneficiaries to the races.

The package includes champagne on arrival, a base for the day with a view of the racecourse and a buffet, with the first race at 4.15pm

Opportunities to sponsor races are also available. Kelso is keen to hear from charities with innovative ideas aimed at entertaining racegoers and raising funds at the same time.
