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.

Covid-19 testing centre at Haydock Park






An approach was made by our local MP and Chair of the All Parliamentary Group for Racing, Conor McGinn, who asked if we could provide space for a testing centre. As a result, we have been working with DCMS, Deloitte, G4S, Boots and the military to provide a Covid-19 testing centre for the local community since mid-April. To-date, it’s been a big success and we’ve managed to put on 17 racedays whilst also providing this facility to the local community.
