We are proud of our racing heritage and those members that represent the club at any race meeting. The club has in place a policy to give consideration to assisting members with racing expenses when it comes to competing on behalf of the club.
A race fund is in existence and members are encouraged to submit an application for reimbursement of costs to the Monthly Meeting after completing an event. Claims for expenses are not granted automatically but have to be assessed by the race fund committee to ascertain that they fall within current guidelines.
The race fund is intended to encourage more of our younger members to race in Woolwich colours.
