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.

Now this is what you call a “smart” phone!

There may be no racing in Europe for the time being, but that doesn’t mean there should be any danger of forgetting what your favourite sport is – not if you like the latest innovative idea from Weatherbys and want to support perhaps the most deserving cause in the country at this time.

Britan’s horseracing secretariat is suggesting owners and fans lock new screen savers onto their phones showing their chosen racing silks.

They can donate as little (minimum £2) or as much as they like – and the money will go to support the National Health Service.

Just click on this webpage and Weatherbys will do the rest.
