Friends of Racing Welfare

Join our club

You can become a friend of Racing Welfare by donating as little as £5 per month!

Your £5 a month will allow a retired beneficiary to meet up with old friends and reminisce about their time in the racing industry. Your £60 over the course of the year will allow a retired couple to attend one of our special day trips such as a raceday, the theatre or the seaside.

In recognition, you will receive a welcome pack, an exclusive pin badgenewsletters, an invitation to one of our coffee mornings to meet some of the beneficiaries you are helping… and more importantly our sincere thanks for your support, as we really do appreciate it.


Why become a Friend of Racing Welfare?

£5 a month could help pay for a retired member of racing staff to attend an outing to the races.
£10 a month could pay for three sessions of physiotherapy to help an injured member of staff back to work.
£20 a month could pay for six-sessions of counselling to benefit a member of racing staff who is suffering with mental health issues.
£60 over the course of the year could allow retired beneficiaries like John and Ann to enjoy a special day trip to the races, the theatre or the seaside.

“…for every horse which appears on a racecourse, there is a large group of individuals that have made it happen. They are not in the limelight but they are totally dedicated to their work. When these people face difficulties in their lives, they need somewhere to turn and Racing Welfare is there for each and every one of them.”

– HRH The Princess Royal

    “On the trip along the Norfolk Broads, the team took care of transporting John comfortably on and off of the boat, giving me the freedom to enjoy the surroundings; something that I don’t always get.  Nothing was too much trouble and everyone we came into contact with went above and beyond.” – John and Ann Crone











    What it means to our beneficiaries:

    “The company, it gets you out and about, you meet people, people that you know, have a good old talk, it makes it fun. Yes two of you can go, or four of you can go, when you have a coach load, and you’re laughing all the way there and all the way back, it’s great!”
