Free tickets to the Badminton Horse Trials are being offered by the event’s charity of the year, in return for helping out for a few hours.
World Horse Welfare is seeking volunteers to help with fundraising and awareness activities at the event next month, between May 4 and 8.
Tasks will include helping out on World Horse Welfare’s trade stand, promoting the charity’s ‘Invisible Horse Sculpture Trail’, selling raffle tickets and raising awareness about the charity’s work with the event’s 150,000 – plus visitors. Those who can give a minimum of three hours of their time will receive a ticket for the full day at the event, giving them a fantastic opportunity to see some of the world’s top three-day eventers in action.
World Horse Welfare Director of Fundraising, Emma Williams said the charity was reliant on a strong network of volunteers to make the most of being Badminton’s Charity of the Year for 2016.
“We are so honoured to have been chosen … and have many exciting activities planned for the event, but we are reliant on a strong network of volunteers to really help us make the most of this fantastic opportunity,” she said.
“Not only is volunteering an amazing way to join us in helping horses all over the world, but it’s also a chance to enjoy a day out at one of the world’s most iconic equestrian events and hopefully meet some lovely new people along the way.”
Volunteers will be required to offer their help for a minimum of three hours on either Wednesday May 4, Thursday May 5, Friday May 6, Saturday May 7, or Sunday May 8 and in return will receive a ticket for the day of the event, plus lunch will be provided.
