ATC Bushfire Appeal Funds Distribution Underway

Wednesday, 29th January 2020

The Australian Turf Club Foundation will immediately begin to distribute funds raised from last weekend’s Racing for the Bushfire Appeal to NSW communities and livestock affected by this summer’s devastating bushfires. According to racingnsw.com.au, more than $130,000 has already been raised by the Racing for the Bushfire Appeal through the Australian Turf Club, Racing NSW, racedays partners, individual donors and through public on-course activations and donations. The first funds to be distributed in coming days will be:

  • $30,000 toward an emergency hay drop for the Cobargo District servicing Bega, Narooma, Dalmeny, Dignams Creek, Tilba, Coolagolite and surrounding areas.
  • $20,000 toward an emergency hay drop for the Moruya District servicing Eurobodalla, Bodalla, Potato Point, Bumbo and surrounding areas.
  • $10,000 to BlazeAid to rebuild fallen fences in fire-affected areas, sourcing fencing material through local businesses.
