Shadwell sponsor Racing to School education days

Posted on: 29th Sep 2017

Racing to School is delighted to announce a new partnership with Shadwell Stud in support of 12 Education Programme days over the next year, starting at Newmarket on September 29th.

The new collaboration builds upon the charity’s involvement with the Shadwell-backed Dubai International Arabian Raceday at Newbury, and with their flagship day at Newmarket this month.

Racing to School is very pleased to extend this partnership, which will give around 500 young people nationwide the opportunity to enjoy a unique outdoor learning day.

Tom Pennington, Shadwell’s Marketing and Nominations Manager said “We are delighted to have cemented our relationship with Racing to School by supporting 12 education programme days over the next year. The concept of educating children, from varying backgrounds, through our wonderful and diverse industry is something we're only too happy to support."

The first recipients of the programme are Year 5 pupils from Admirals Academy, who attend Shadwell day for a Maths Activity event. The same group were fortunate to visit Shadwell Stud in Thetford earlier this month and were given a unique behind the scenes tour of this world famous operation. Following the visit, pupils were tasked with writing a poem to reflect the sights and sounds of life at the stud.

Racing to School’s Chief Executive John Blake added: “We are so grateful to Shadwell for recognising the value of the charity’s Education Programmes, and for generously supporting our year-round work. The charity and Shadwell have a shared vision for the sport’s potential to inspire and include young people, regardless of background and location.”
