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 focus of this project is the community of Newmarket, who have a passion for horse racing and want to gain insights into the runners and the races. We offer two of these evenings a year - one for Cheltenham and one for Ascot. For each evening, we bring in a panel which consists of people in the industry such as jockeys, trainers and breeders, who talk to the audience about the horses and the races and give their insights for the day. This event brings the community together to chat about the industry.
