$10,000 to Tasmanian families

Brendan Pursell and his team of greyhounds have helped raise $7,000 for the families of the Devonport jumping castle tragedy last year.

For the month of January, GRV donated $500 for every place getter Brendan’s team recorded.

GRV will top up the $7,000 donation to $10,000, which will be made to the Go Fund Me Page | Support for Families – Hilcrest Primary School.

Greyhound Racing Chair, Peita Duncan thanked Brendan for taking part in the fundraiser.

  • Don’t Tell Bluey
