The Big Help Out

The Big Help Out returns to the National Horseracing Museum

Over seven million people took part in last year’s Big Help Out – they got together to volunteer, and made a huge difference where they live – and organisers are have launched this year’s Big Help Out 2024 with support from His Majesty the King.

This year, the Big Help Out will take place over three days from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 June 2024, and here at the National Horseracing Museum we will be hosting a volunteer taster session with tea and biscuits. If you have ever thought about volunteering, have questions or maybe just want to see what it’s all about drop in – no need to book – between 10am and 12pm on Saturday 8 June 2024 and meet with members of our team in Palace House. We are looking for visitor hosts and equine volunteers at the moment and cannot wait to welcome you to the museum!

His Majesty the King, King Charles III said:

“I am delighted to support the return of the Big Help Out in 2024. This Summer, between June 7 and June 9, there will be another opportunity to join so many dedicated volunteers in giving time to a worthy cause of their choosing, whether that is supporting a local food bank, tending a community garden, spending time with a vulnerable person or
teaching a skill to young people. Whoever and wherever you are, each of us will have a chance to play a small part in helping transform our communities for the benefit of all.

“This year, the Big Help Out is particularly keen to invite schools and businesses to be a part of this special moment.  Young people’s energy and enthusiasm can be enormously valuable, and business is a vital part of the fabric of both our local communities and of our wider society.

“So, if you are able, I can only encourage you to support the Big Help Out once more, thereby helping to build the kinder, closer communities of which we can all be so proud.”

His Majesty the King, King Charles III
