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.

Chepstow Racecourse

Programme Highlight

We host many charity race days which have raised thousands of pounds for a range of good causes. We have also built strong relationships with local MPs, council CEOs, Welsh Ministers, etc. to ensure they are aware of the value of the racecourse to the community. We also donated £25k worth of food to community food banks during the Covid19 pandemic. The latter is what we are most proud of.
