|Racing Welfare and Ownaracehorse|
Ownaracehorse is a supporter of the racing charity, Racing Welfare. They are our charity of choice for 2011/12.
Racing Welfare supports the grass roots staff in the racing industry, and the charity provides an invaluable source of support and advice for people who are often young, inexperienced and sometimes vulnerable. We have had first-hand experience of the charity's work with a number of stable lads and lasses, which has always been excellent, and certainly worth supporting. These people often get overlooked by racing, but are an essential component - and most likely are the jockeys, trainers or stud managers of the future.
We provide donations to Racing Welfare from three sources:
1. Shareholders who don't reach the £20.00 threshold for a cash prizemoney payment can donate their prizemoney to the charity. We make these payments to the charity twice a year.
2. We run a promotion once a year which sees Ownaracehorse Ltd donating a percentage of our revenue to the charity.
3. Ownaracehorse Ltd provide a 'Private Service' share worth between £1,300 to £3,000 every year as one of Racing Welfare's monthly lottery prizes.
Richard Negus, Fundraising and Communications Executive for Racing Welfare stated:
“Racing Welfare is extremely grateful to Ownaracehorse for its generous support. The lads and lasses who work in racing stables are all too often the forgotten people in our wonderful sport. Racing Welfare is the only Charity that helps racing’s backbone in times of need, and without the financial support such as that shown by Ownaracehorse we cannot continue to help the 17,000 people who really make your day at the races. Thank you on behalf of Racing Welfare and British stable and stud staff.”
As well as their charity website, Racing Welfare also operate the Racing Lottery, a weekly prize draw where over 80p in every £1 goes directly to Racing Welfare.
