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.

Purpose:

The Box4Kids initiative is run by the Barrie Wells Trust. Box4Kids invites seriously ill and disabled children to enjoy a sporting or entertainment event in the luxury of an executive box. Not only do boxes provide the VIP treatment, they are also a safe environment for children with severe medical needs. We collaborate with over 130 clubs, venues and box holders who kindly donate their boxes. To date nearly 9,500 children and their families have enjoyed a Box4Kids experience.
