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.

Racing Foundation

Programme Highlight

We currently fund a number of community engagement and education projects being delivered by charitable partners, including Racing to School programmes; Pony Racing Academies; the Bridge of Hope project; Take The Reins programme; Riding a Dream and activities at inner city riding schools such as the Urban Equestrian Academy in Leicester. As examples, Racing to School's Riders Programme and Aintree Beacon have engaged with a large number of youngsters to raise awareness of the racing industry and the opportunities it offers. In particular, working with youngsters in inner-city areas/ pony club centres who may otherwise not have had the opportunity to take part in such activities, thus benefitting both the industry and the youngsters.
