Racing Staff Week is a celebration of everyone working to make horse racing happen every day of the year and runs from June 29th through to July 6th.
And needless to say FansBet is fully behind the initiative and will be spending the week with a number of key players in the racing industry to gain a full insight into the day-to-day activities of these unsung heroes of a sport which is enjoyed by millions of people each week.
It’s the ideal opportunity to shine a light on the contribution of all racing’s people and seeks to generate rewards as well as building a legacy of longer term initiatives that positively impact the lives of people working in the industry.
Racing Welfare will be focusing on bringing to life the people behind the industry as well as highlighting the good practices which take place in the industry on a daily basis.
Between June 29th and July 6th all 41 courses in the country will be taking part with on-course activities forming an integral part of the week with Racing Welfare’s team of welfare officers visiting yards and courses across the country throughout the week.
Supporting current and retired racing staff and their families, as well as enhance the wellbeing of people from the horseracing and thoroughbred breeding community by providing enabling and proactive support throughout and after their working lives; FansBet are a proud partner of Racing Welfare.
Dawn Goodfellow, chief executive of Racing Welfare, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many rewards being laid on by racing’s stakeholders and the racecourses again this year. We’re also really pleased to see the week provide a platform for the launch of long-term initiatives which benefit the lives of those working in racing all year round.
“At its heart, Racing Staff Week presents an opportunity to showcase the people behind the success of British racing and we are looking forward to a fantastic week of celebrations.”
