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.

Newmarket Festival

Programme Highlight

We hosted two community events in 2019, the Colour Fun and the Midsummer Night Walk. Both are aimed at all ages and abilities, these events bring the community together whilst fundraising for the good causes and organisations in and around Newmarket. We also host the 'Live Your Dreams' programme at Newmarket Academy. This programme delivers 4 half day sessions engaging with Year 10 students allowing them to explore their potential. We look at possible careers when they finish their education. We show them skills to be prepared for interviews and look at their individual strengths to provide confidence going into the work place.
