Yorkshire Racing Launches 'Beacon' Programme


WiSE participants choosing Best Turned Out at Wetherby | Racing Together

Go Racing and Racing Together have launched the Yorkshire Racing Beacon Programme, a series of community-driven events that support local communities. The initial event, held at Wetherby Mar. 31, centered around WiSE, Wetherby in support of the Elderly. The Yorkshire Community Beacon Programme will include a range of activities, including college visits and art projects, behind-the-scenes racecourse experiences and internships. The Beacon will promote volunteering as part of Racing Together Community Day, work with community groups and on fundraising events, as well as involvement in established and emerging community programmes.

Lucy Gurney, Community Engagement Manager for Racing Together said, “Yorkshire Racing is a world-class racing region and already hosts some of the best charity racedays and community initiatives. Our aim is to strengthen the connections between Yorkshire racing and its communities for mutual long-term benefit. This pilot programme builds upon broadly similar activity taking place at Aintree, Newmarket and through Scottish Racing.”
