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.

Local Care Home residents given VIP treatment at ‘By Gone Beverley’ event

Beverley racecourse recently held a very special event for three Beverley-based Care Homes, which included residents of Claremont House.

The By Gone Beverley event was held on the May Bank Holiday and was set against a 1960s theme, which included live entertainment.

Also supporting the event was local charity, Beverley Community Lift that provided transport for the group. Racecourse staff ensured that there was a specially-reserved area, with tea, coffee and home-made cakes and scones on offer.

With the sun shining, the guests were able to sit outside and take in the great atmosphere of a day’s racing and listen to a performance by Mad Dog Jones and his swing band.

Jennie Falconer from Claremont House commented: “The residents and staff would like to extend their sincere thanks to the Racecourse for providing such a fantastic day and event for them.”

Resident Elsie Smith, 88, said of the day: “I had a truly wonderful time, everything was absolutely perfect. No one could have been cared for better than us. I hadn’t been outdoors for seven weeks following a fall at home.”
