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

Our work experience day at our race meeting on Tuesday 27th August 2019. We gave a small group of teenagers a 'behind the scenes' experience of a raceday. They each spent a race with the Judge, Stewards, Starter, Clerk of the Scales, Raceday Presenter and Racecourse Manager. All said that they found the day hugely beneficial and that they hoped to pursue their interest further, possibly with a career in racing in mind.
