Cheering on our mascots

Thousands of people have supported our mascots, ‘Tadworth the Hound’ and ‘Barney the Bear’, at racecourses and cricket grounds across the UK. The mascots and their friends regularly entertain crowds with their fun running and egg and spoon races, and have raised hundreds of pounds at the same time. The mascots will be attending our three annual fairs at The Children's Trust and even take part in official Mascot races! Below is the official mascot calendar where they will be making appearances throughout the year. The mascots also attend our popular Supercar event in June where ‘Tadworth the Hound’ has been snapped whizzing around the racetrack in a Dunsfold Park.
