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 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!

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!

  1. And don’t forget, the Animal Health Trust looks after our International Glen DNA Archive!

    A new “Confidentiality” page has been added to the Glen Archive website, which has everything you need to know about this breed health resource … and an online swab kit request form!

    We don’t know if or when some heritable health condition will again “pop up” in our lovely breed … but if it ever does, let’s be prepared!

    It is easy to take 5 cheek swabs from your Glen … (two people might be better than one!) … and send them to the AHT, along with a copy of your Glen’s pedigree and a simple “submission form” …

    The more samples we have stored at the AHT the quicker a research project can “get off the ground” … so please “do YOUR bit” for the breed and request a swab kit … and return it to the AHT!

    Thank you.

    Here’s the new “Confidentiality” page:
