The Newmarket Journal is once again joining forces with Newmarket Racecourses to find the the 2013 Community Champion of Newmarket.
The Journal and the racecourse would like to hear from readers about their own stories of achievement or those of others. in schools, in sports, at work, in charity or voluntary work, helping family or friends, a contribution to the community or good citizenship.
Last year’s inaugural Community Champion was Newmarket long-distance runner Martin Gear – a heath man with Jockey Club Estates – who received the award for his efforts in raising many thousands of pounds for a variety of charities. The person chosen as the Community Champion of 2013 will win either a day with Newmarket Racecourses’ ambassador Rob Huff, the current World Touring Car Champion, or two annual badges to Newmarket Racecourses for 2014.
Amy Starkey, regional director East, of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We wish Dubai Future Champions Day to be about all that is great in the Newmarket community. It is already established as a great day of racing and once again we want to celebrate it with those who make such a special contribution to Newmarket.
Journal editor Barry Peters added: “We are looking forward to receiving the inspiring stories about the achievements of local people.”
