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 community engagement and educational activity we are most proud of is our Youth Development Strategy. The project consists of different activities, such as the graffiti art project (an art project for the women in Newmarket), teen chill (a youth group set up to combat antisocial behaviour), youth gym club (a youth club set up to help the youths with developing healthy lifestyles), cinema club (a club for watching films) and the cooking course (helping to develop healthy habits and to gain useful life skills). We are proud of this project because it had a very tangible impact on the youth of the community. All the various activities within the project were very well received, with a total of 488 youths attending the various projects over the course of 2019.
