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.

Studying the Form at Hamilton Park Project






Using photos and documents from the racecourse’s archive, the Hamilton Grammar School pupils researched the history and significance of racing in Hamilton and beyond, producing some stunning pieces of artwork. The S2 pupils (aged 12-14) started the project at the end of their S1 year, and their work was initially exhibited at the Lanarkshire Chamber of Commerce Raceday at Hamilton Park on September 23. Racegoers enjoyed viewing the exhibition while the pupils proudly discussed their work. The ‘Studying the Form at Hamilton Park’ project, which showcases horse racing’s deep-rooted history in the local area, was exhibited at Hampden Park’s Hall of Fame from November 25 to December 2.
