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.

Barrie Wells Trust

Current Activities

Programme Highlight

Barrie Wells, our Executive Chairman and sole funder, made a conscious decision to donate ongoing funds to enable seriously ill children to be afforded special experiences. The Trust is unique as it does not ask for monetary donations, just simply the kind donation of executive boxes, whether this be once a year or on several occasions. The Box4Kids initiative has helped thousands of young people by offering them VIP experiences using hospitality spaces at sporting, horse racing, music and entertainment venues. The Jockey Club's partnership with Box4Kids has for the past four years enabled young people to have VIP days out at some of Britain's best racecourses and race days, including exclusive extras such as visiting the Parade Ring, presenting prizes and choosing the best turned out horse.
