I am delighted to have joined the Racing Welfare Team as the Fundraising Executive. A large part of my role is looking after all those that participate in taking on our challenger events such as the Great North Run or London Marathon as well as our community fundraisers. It is great to support our fundraisers on their journey to taking on numerous challenges from Skydives to Marathons and getting out and meeting those who selflessly give up their own time to raise vital funds for us is certainly a high light of the role. I also keep track of any donation people kindly make as well as supporting our Corporate Fundraising and Events Managers.
I have worked in Racing for over 12 years and have been lucky enough to work in some of the biggest yards in the country and sit on some amazing horses. I have loved every minute working within this industry having ridden horses from a very young age, it was a dream come true to be able to ride horses and actually get paid for doing so!
To now be in a role that helps fundraise vital funds for us to be able to continue to provide the invaluable services and support to the horse racing and breeding industry is so exciting and a real privilege.
