    ROA support of staff and owner BBQs keeps yards sizzling

    Back to all news

    For a second year, the Racehorse Owners Association will be offering contributions of £100 to trainers organising BBQs or other social events for their staff and owners during Racing Staff Week, 1-8 July 2018.

    The initiative, which saw contributions to 30 events in 2017, proved popular last year and provided an ideal environment for owners and staff to get to know each other better in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

    Owners have cited that an important element of their ownership experience is getting to know the member of staff that cares for their horse(s). It is hoped that these events will continue to develop owner/staff relationships, whilst also celebrating Racing Staff Week and the dedication of racing’s workforce.

    Trainers will shortly receive an application form for the funding contribution via email. Alternatively, the BBQ application form can be downloaded from the ROA website. Closing date for applications is 1st June 2018. A maximum of 30 contributions are available, with successful applications being drawn at random.

    BBQ organisers will be encouraged to take pictures and share them on social media using #racingstaffweek and #ROABBQs. Feedback on the events will also be invited.

    For further information on the Staff and Owner BBQs, please email Chloe Martin or call 07725 031336.
