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.

Ripon Joins On The Ball Campaign

Inspired by the ‘On The Ball’ campaign, free period products will now be provided in the ladies’ toilets at Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse from the opening fixture of the 2020 season on Thursday 16th April.

The ‘On The Ball’ campaign, started by Celtic fans Erin, Orlaith and Mikaela in May 2018 is aimed at encouraging football clubs to provide free period products at stadiums and in under two years since their initial success with Celtic 108 football clubs worldwide are now #OnTheBall.

Like Erin, Orlaith and Mikaela we believe that period products should be readily available and accessible at no cost, just like toilet roll and soap and we are delighted to join the campaign.
