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.

Plenty of Half-Term racing action for all the family

It’s school Half-Term next week and we’ve listed some fixtures with entertainment for all the family at different racecourses across the country. Under 18s go free at most fixtures – find out more about #u18sracefree here.

Look below to find out more:

With the recent bad weather, please do check racecourse websites and social media regularly ahead of attending fixtures.

Introducing young people to racing this Half Term

Education charity Racing to School will be hosting 190 young people across four groups at Doncaster, Exeter, Lingfield and Sedgefield next week, as well as taking in a visit to the Royal Agricultural University. The Riders’ Programme focusses on young people that already have an interest in horses and equestrian sport, by giving them an opportunity to experience racing and its training and career paths – this is very often their first taste of the sport. The Careers in Racing team support these events by providing links to future careers days and information for those interested in learning more about the many opportunities available.
