Jess Leighton

Corporate Fundraising and Events Manager – Northern Region

Jess Leighton : Corporate Fundraising and Events Manager – Northern Region

I joined Racing Welfare in November 2018 as the Corporate Fundraising and Events Manager, covering the Northern region. My role involves the organisation of fundraising events, which raise vital funds and increase the profile of Racing Welfare, these events can range from the Clock Tower Cup Stable Staff Charity Race to the Middleham Open Day.

For the last five years, I have worked at York Racecourse in the Marketing and Sponsorship team, supporting the delivery of sponsorship and marketing activity of the eighteen racedays enjoyed each season by 365,000 racegoers, during this varied role I saw star horses such as Enable, Stradivarius and Roaring Lion, to music acts Paloma Faith and Olly Murs to family characters Paw Patrol and Paddington!

I am looking forward to enjoying a diverse and challenging role at Racing Welfare, working in an industry I am passionate about, whilst playing a part in achieving the charities vision; that everyone from the horseracing and breeding industry and community feels supported and has the opportunity to thrive.
