Fancy a bit of volunteering?

Calling all volunteers!

If you love the Animal Health Trust, horse racing and/or cycling and don’t live too far from Newmarket, then we have some volunteering opportunities that might be right for you. Volunteering is a great way to help support a charity, meet new people, experience new things and we need some keen volunteers to help us at the below events.

To sign up to volunteer, just email events@aht.org.uk for more information.

AHT at Royal Windsor Horse Show

We’re thrilled to announce that the AHT, in its 75th year, is the first Equine Charity of the Year at Royal Windsor Horse Show next week (10 – 14 May). So if you’re visiting the show, or watching it on TV, look out for the AHT!

Bucket collectors wanted for Newmarket Charity Race Day – Saturday 10 June

If you like horse racing you could help represent the AHT on its annual charity race day at the July Course in Newmarket. Every year we are lucky enough to have volunteers run a bucket collection at the end of the day’s entertainment, often raising well over £1,000 in a short amount of time!

BE PART OF THE DAY
Marshals needed for charity cycle ride – Sunday 25 June

We’re delighted to be the benefiting charity of the Newmarket Hilly Sportive on Sunday 25 June and need volunteers to help marshal the event and make sure the cyclists make their way round the course safely. If you like cycling, this will be a great event to be involved in as the competitors will find that Suffolk isn’t as flat as you might think!

Do you do puppy packs?

BREEDERS! Please help us to spread the word about the Glen DNA Archive!

We are asking breeders to help spread the word about the Glen DNA Archive by including this Puppy Pack letter into their own“Puppy Packs” …

If every puppy owner knows about this invaluable resource, hopefully we will have regular contributions to the DNA Archive to build up the number of swabs stored at the AHT … an extensive number of swabs stored will enable any future health research projects to “hit the ground running” …

We gratefully accept swabs from Glens of all ages and health status … not just puppies! Please visit the Glen Archive website for more information, a video demonstrating how to take swabs from your Glen and an online swab kit request form: www.glenarchive.com

Our target for 2017 is to reach 250 submissions! Thank you for supporting a resource that may one day benefit YOUR Glen …
