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.

This project is a partnership between Haydock Park Racecourse and Manchester United FC Foundation, where Haydock Park and Man U provide opportunities to 15 young people with difficult backgrounds from Trafford, opportunities to come to a racecourse on a raceday and non-racedays, to provide education and special experiences. It’s also aimed at opening their eyes to the role a racecourse plays in the community and the job opportunities that exist.
