Racing charity provides solace in tough times
London: Horse racing is often seen as a preserve of the wealthy but charity Racing Welfare is working overtime to deal with huge demands from those working in an industry in dire financial straits.
The charity's mission is to look after the British horse racing workforce and the coronavirus pandemic has put staff under immense pressure, with the sport in shutdown.
Racing Welfare, created in 2000, provides housing for working and retired staff at rates well below market value as well as occupational and mental health services. - AFP
