The Horsham Greyhound Racing Club is partnering with national charity Livin, a not-for-profit organisation which raises mental health and suicide prevention awareness through education programs.
As from 1 January, and for the next nine weeks, the club is donating $100 to Livin when a race is won by a local trainer.
The fundraiser will culminate at the Horsham Cup on Saturday, 9 March, with a cheque presentation to Livin on the night.
“This is a great opportunity for the club to give back to the local community and support those in need. The club has a huge number of local trainers and we are looking to be able to make a significant donation to Livin on Cup night,” said the Club’s Manager, Justin Brilliant.
“The Horsham Greyhound Racing Club is looking forward to seeing local trainers winning and the club making donations to the charity on their behalf,” he said.
There will be many opportunities for local trainers to win with more than 100 races during the nine weeks with the club aiming to raise between $3000 – $5000.
The donations will be going directly back to the local Wimmera area with Livin using the funds to present its LIVINwell educational program.
