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 Bridge of Hope is a simple project starting small, but with a big mission: providing hope to young people with amazing but unappreciated talents - through a meaningful, new career in the sport of horseracing and its supply chain. Imagine if there was some mechanism for taking those who have been dealt a rough hand in life - whether from mental illness, addiction, leaving care, crime, discrimination, trauma or homelessness - and giving them a second chance? There are plenty of brilliant charities taking the fallen victims of the above life challenges and providing them with wonderful pastoral care, but they typically stop at getting their clients work ready. However, research clearly proves that the single biggest game changer of life chances is an actual job. The Bridge of Hope aims to bridge this gap.
