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.

Programme Highlight

We have allowed a COVID testing station to be based on site for a reduced fee. We sponsor planters at the train station being part of the village, and some of the British Legion statues in the village. We provided 125 vouchers for charities and auctions in 2019. We are the host for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust Fundraiser and the R.A.B. Fundraiser (both on racedays, both at reduced fees). We host the Racing To School teams whenever they wish, and have hosted “Box4Kids” for Barrie Wells Trust. We sponsored the Plumpton Football Teams (Children) awards night, and provide facilities for Community Use (E,g. Local hunt used the car park, as have the Community Equine Rangers and Sussex Search and Rescue Teams)
