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.

Current Activities

Programme Highlight

Education: We host Racing to School 3 or 4 times a year and donate. Volunteering: As part of the Racing Together Community Day 2019 staff from the racecourse visited Salisbury Trust for the Homeless to do garden clearance. Fundraising & Donations: Tickets for Troops ticket donations, exit bucket collections for local charities and Racing Welfare. In 2019 we had #GoRacingGreen on site on two racedays.
