Charities and community groups across the Peninsula are being given the chance to raise their profile and receive some much-needed financial assistance thanks to the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club. This season the club is expanding its Caring for the Community program and incorporating it in its race days, with funds set aside to be distributed among groups at the end of the season.
At each race meeting a nominated charity or community group will be given exposure in the race book and throughout the day, allowing it to promote the organisation to a wider audience as well as receive a donation from the club.
Charities and community groups that demonstrate the need for assistance and may not have the exposure to command community support are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org for eligibility criteria and nomination forms.
Meanwhile, the club welcomed the four recipients of its 2018-19 program — Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club, Western Port Riding Develops Abilities, Balnarring Boomerang Bags and Womin Djeka Balnarring Ngargee — to its annual general meeting on September 22, where they were thanked for their work.
