Community

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Heath remains open. In order that the community can enjoy this open space safely, may we remind all users to observe the Government’s minimum two metres social distancing rule. We kindly request that the Heath is not used for gatherings, picnics and such like during this challenging time for everyone. 

“Ascot Racecourse Supports” helps in the local community in many ways including donations of raceday tickets, typically in excess of 650 annually, to help with fundraising activities.  We are also grateful for the assistance of our local emergency services and in recognition of their support to the racecourse, provide 2-for-1 raceday ticket offers for all staff within a 10-mile radius of the racecourse.

We support local schools with family raceday offers which earn cash back for school projects and run an annual Royal Ascot Schools Arts Competition with cash prizes which sees artwork displayed in the Ascot Heath tunnel for the local community to enjoy.

Over the years we have also supported the Sunninghill Victorian Street Fayre, Sunninghill Wheelbarrow Race, Mayoral Charity Balls, provided complimentary tickets for community events and provide the Ascot Durning Library and Ascot Hall for local community hire from within racecourse owned premises.   

The Racecourse sits on the Neighbourhood Action Group, contributing to key issues identified by Ascot’s community.
