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:

In 2018 Uttoxeter won the showcase community and Corporate Social Responsibility Category for its initiative “Saving 75 lives.” This involved working with partners to promote a prostate cancer screening programme which involved a record 510 men taking free Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) tests at Uttoxeter Racecourse earlier this year. Nearly 40 were given letters indicating they were at risk which means in the last five years the tests have helped an estimated 75 men avoid falling victim to the UK's third-biggest killer.
