4Racing set up to raise money for Racing Welfare Covid-19 appeal

Rebecca Menzies

4Racing is a fundraising campaign to help horse-racing stable staff and is an official charity partner of Racing Welfare.

4Racing has been set up by Graham Arnold & Ian Griffiths as a fundraising campaign to help horse-racing stable staff, the heartbeat of the industry, that have suffered due to COVID-19, both financially and mentally.

They feel it is important to give something back to the industry that gives pleasure to so many people and employment to thousands as well.

4Racing is an official charity partner of Racing Welfare and are fundraisers for Riders Minds, an initiative to support any horse rider that may be having mental health issues.

They have a website, Facebook page and group, the links are shown below.

One big part of what they are doing is to have a racehorse leased to run for the campaign. She is a four-year-old mare in training with Rebecca Menzies. The trainer was happy to get behind the campaign as a Brand Ambassador too, as was well known commentator Derek 'Tommo' Thompson, trainer James Ewart and former jockey and his wife; Brian & Jackie Storey.

4Racing are charging no admin fees at all for this and any surplus over and above the expenses of having the horse go to the fund.

4Racing are selling shares in Snowy Burrows, limited to 100 in each. (Currently 82 have already been sold).They are available through the website: www.4-racing.com at £325 until the 30th June (the end of the syndicate year) as a one-off payment or in monthly instalments, making them affordable to all. If they manage to sell all 100 shares, thousands of pounds will be raised for the campaign.

Racing is such a huge industry and important to so many economies why not get behind this a little and show some support and at the same time have some fun!

Graham said: "We are delighted to have sold 82 shares at the moment, which is an amazing achievement considering we have not been able to get to the races to promote our campaign. I am sure for a small monthly outlay so many people would want to get involved if we can we get the message out to a wider audience as possible. This is where we need help from everybody that loves their racing or rely on it to earn a living. People will surely want to get involved as they will be contributing to a good cause at the same time as having fun with the horses."

They have also had an exclusive painting done for us by talented artist Shany Hagan and prints are being sold to shareholders and anyone else which also entitles them to go into a prize draw to win the original piece of art. All profit from these sales will also go to the appeal.
