charity bucket collectors wanted to help at our gala race day
We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers to attend our Animal Health Trust (AHT) Gala Race Day and help boost our charity’s bucket collection throughout the day.
Last year we raised over £1,000 to support our vital work, through bucket collections alone, at the AHT Gala Race Day. Determined to raise more money this year, we need help from an army of volunteers to encourage race goers to support the charity on the day.
The AHT Gala Race Day is being held on Saturday 8 June at the July Racecourse in Newmarket; the first of the Summer Saturdays Live events. Evening entertainment is being provided by chart topping UK bands The Saturdays and Lawson, and promises to kick off the summer racing season in style!
We need extra volunteers to convince people to dig deep to enable us to continue the fight against disease and injury in animals. Our work to combat infectious equine diseases such as Equine HerpesVirus, Strangles, equine influenza and equine grass sickness improves the health of horses not just in the UK, but all over the world.
Dr Mark Vaudin, our Deputy Chief Executive, said: “We were amazed by the generosity of people last year, and want this year’s AHT Gala Race Day to be bigger and better than ever.
“We need enthusiastic volunteers who are willing to interact with as many race goers as possible, to help us raise funds for our vital work improving the health and welfare of animals. If you would like to help us then we would love to hear from you!”
Volunteers will be provided with free entrance to the days racing events and, in return, will be required to stay until the end of the live performances to assist with bucket collections on the gates. If you would like to support us by volunteering as a bucket collector, please contact Chloe Bowler on firstname.lastname@example.org.
