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.

Oli Bell and Ryan Moore congratulate winners of Royal Ascot Art Competition from home

Ascot’s art competition attracted over 700 entries from 12 participating schools, gaining over 2,500 online votes in total.

Ascot Racecourse Supports is giving the six winning schools a £1,000 in prize and sending £50/ £25 Amazon vouchers to the students that won and the runners-up.

A celebratory Zoom video call took place with jockey Ryan Moore an Ascot Supports Racing Ambassador, and ITV Racing’s Oli Bell. Highlights of the recording can be viewed here:

Ascot plans to erect the artwork in the Heath Tunnel to complement those from previous years, for racegoers and the local community to enjoy.

See the winners from each category below – Ryan Moore was also asked to choose his overall favourite, which was Bea Ryan (age 12).
