The IJF Ascot Ambassadors Programme

Share This Post

The Injured Jockeys Fund extends vital support to jockey’s past and present facing injuries or challenges, offering assistance to riders and their families. Since its establishment in 1964, the charity has aided over 1,000 individuals, providing over £20 million in charitable support. The IJF Ascot Ambassador Programme enhances guest experiences on race days by offering informative talks and tours led by former jockeys. This initiative has generated over £150,000, contributing to the rehabilitation and care of numerous beneficiaries. These funds have facilitated the provision of essential equipment for rehabilitation and fitness centres, including hydrotherapy pools and gym gear at Oaksey House, Peter O’Sullevan House, and Jack Berry House. Additionally, the programme has facilitated over 1,500 sessions encompassing injury management, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation across our centres. Ascot have also kindly donated race naming rights to their 3.00PM race on Saturday 17th February ‘The Injured Jockeys Fund Ambassadors Programme Swinley Handicap Steeple Chase’.

We are immensely grateful to Ascot for their unwavering support and collaboration in hosting the IJF Ascot Ambassador Programme. Their dedication to enhancing the guest experience while simultaneously championing the cause of injured jockeys is truly commendable. Through their partnership, we have been able to raise vital funds that directly contribute to the well-being and rehabilitation of jockeys in need. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Ascot for their ongoing partnership and invaluable contribution to our mission.

“We are very grateful to Ascot and the racing public for their kind generosity via this fantastic initiative, raising vital funds for the Injured Jockeys Fund. We are sincerely grateful for the support which helps jockey’s past and present”. LISA HANCOCK CEO, Injured Jockeys Fund
