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:

Sports Day was started to build rapport and a relationship between the different stable yards. Sports Day is a community event and builds friendly competition through the yards. It is a team building day for the yards and an opportunity for them to all socialise in a relaxed environment. It is very well supported by the yards and the Newmarket Community.
