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

The BGC and its members values the close relationship between betting and horseracing; the two sectors are closely linked and have a longstanding history of partnership – whether in the form of fundraising, stakeholder engagement or working jointly with the third sector. Amongst the many initiatives we – and our members have supported – the 2020 Virtual Grand National is perhaps our greatest achievement to date.
