Head of Fundraising
My name is Mark Loades and I am the High Value Giving Manager for Racing Welfare. I joined the charity in May 2016 from another regional charity where I was undertaking a similar role working with individuals, companies and trusts to secure ongoing support for their cause. Whilst this is the first time I have worked within the racing industry I have been a horse racing fan since the age of 7 when my Grandad first took me to what was then Devon and Exeter Racecourse. I enjoy going to both national hunt and flat racing fixtures and visiting the many courses throughout the country. I have also been a member of Elite Racing Club for a number of years now.
Therefore to work within racing is a dream come true and I am extremely passionate about raising the money required to develop Racing Welfare’s support and services. This to help all the dedicated people working long and demanding hours when they face difficulties in their lives without whom there would be no horseracing for millions of people like me to enjoy. I would therefore be delighted to hear from any individual, company or charitable trust who would like to learn more about the charity and discuss how we might be able to work together to make a real difference to the people working within the industry.
