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

Purpose:

I created this event to allow people from local care and supported living facilities to be able to attend a race day for the first time at their local course. The focus was to improve the quality of life of the residents of the facilities by visiting somewhere new, thus creating new sensory experiences. This was also a key activity for stimulating memories with dementia patients, particularly one who has been a jockey. The facilities are now in contact with Nottingham Racecourse to host and attend other events, when such times allow.
