SHOALHAVEN City Turf Club will use their next race meeting as a fundraising day for farmers affected by the ongoing drought.
Gate takings, sponsorship funds and fundraising efforts from across the meeting to be held on Sunday, August 26 will be contributed to the worthy cause.
“We would like to call on any farmers living within 100-150km of the Shoalhaven to contact us so we can assist those closest to home,” Turf Club chief executive Lynn Locke told Racing NSW.
“We have a wonderful community and are hoping we will have a great crowd on the day to support this fantastic cause. There are plenty of activities planned to complement the racing including Fashions on the Field. We know many local businesses will donate prizes and services that we can use to enable us to raise a substantial amount."
The Club is also a finalist for the Outstanding Achievement Award at the Racing NSW Country and Provincial Awards .
