Golden ticket initiative returns for Racing Staff Week 2019

28 Jun 2019 BHA Features Welfare

Racing staff will again have the chance to win an array of prizes thanks to the BHA and Careersinracing’s golden ticket initiative for Racing Staff Week, which returns for the third year on the spin.

There will be 15 golden tickets hidden across racecourses and training centres by BHA Raceday Officials or Racing Welfare Officers over the course of Racing Staff Week 2019, which runs from 29th June to 6th July.

Once again, the tickets can be redeemed for a £100 voucher from a choice of high street retailers including Amazon, Next and iTunes.

The winners will be required to return the winning golden ticket in an envelope to 75 High Holborn, along with a completed claim form to include name, address, employer’s name and which voucher they would like.

Zoe Elliott, Head of Careers Marketing and Recruitment at the BHA, said:

“Careersinracing are delighted to be supporting Racing Staff Week with our popular Golden Tickets game. Fifteen £100 vouchers will be spread throughout the country for Racing Staff to find, be they working at a racing yard, racecourse or in the breeding industry.  It is just a small token of thanks to celebrate the work that all our racing staff do in a huge number of diverse roles.

“We are always delighted to work with Racing Welfare to showcase their support services, which are available to everyone in racing to access.  To have services in place for racing staff such as CATS (Careers Advice and Training Service), which can help people plan and develop their careers in racing is an outstanding offering and we are always proud to tell parents and school careers advisors of the career support on offer throughout someone’s time working in racing.”
