Three Gippsland greyhound racing clubs and Greyhound Racing Victoria have contributed funds to a local flood-affected playgroup.
The unexpected flooding of the Traralgon Playgroup facilities, which are located in the Traralgon Showgrounds complex, saw the loss of most of the group’s outdoor toys and bike.
The group approached Traralgon GRC for assistance and club manager Steve Clarke not only quickly made a cash commitment, buts also sought assistance from the Sale and Warragul clubs.
This amount was matched by Greyhound Racing Victoria, which brought the total to $1500.
Playgroup president Melissa Casey said the group offered space for families to connect, play and socialise.
“We rely on grants and fundraising activities and equipment in good working order,” she said.
“We appreciate the speedy response to our plea for help from the Gippsland greyhound racing industry, which will enable us to quickly replace the lost items.”
