We are delighted to confirm the formal link between The Gold and Green Crowd and Racing Welfare.
As of 1st September 2020, any prize money earned by the shares owned by The Gold and Green Crowd will be pooled and donated to Racing Welfare.
In return for no longer getting a share of prize money, members will get automatic reductions on their renewal fees.
This is something we feel is very important and very much hope the amount of money we are able to donate is worthwhile and makes a difference.
We have a membership who are passionate about racing, and they are full of respect and admiration for those behind the scenes who make it all happen. Having the opportunity to try and support the excellent efforts of Racing Welfare is a privilege and we hope the horses manage to accrue an amount that makes a difference.

Covid-19 has had a definite impact on a number of charities, and Racing Welfare are not alone in seeing the level of financial support given drop significantly. There have launched a number of original and interesting initiatives to try and boost the funds available including The Furlong Factor and the current auction that is running on their website, but the requirement for more funds is still there and we hope that this arrangement helps to bridge some of the gap.

This arrangement will remain in place until the end of 2021, at which stage the Gold and Green Crowd members will be asked to nominate and then vote for the beneficiaries of the pot for 2022.
