Rotary hopes Christmas Races are a winner

FINE weather and a good crowd are all that is needed to make Sunday’s Rotary Christmas at Moruya races an absolute winner.

The race day will raise funds for Moruya Cancer Carers and the future Oncology Unit at Moruya Hospital.

The three Rotary Clubs of Batemans Bay, Moruya and Narooma have combined with Moruya Jockey Club (MJC) to make this inaugural Christmas race meeting special.

“It is all shaping up to be a really successful day,” MJC manager Brian Cowden said.

It is a seven race program starting at 1pm. Gates open at 11.30am.

Narooma Rotary president Charmaine White said Rotary had been overwhelmed by the number of people who booked in to hold their Christmas parties at the races.

There will also be children’s entertainment including a jumping castle, face painting and a visit from Santa.

Batemans Bay Rotary president David Ashford is excited about its potential.

“It’s something quite different and should be quite spectacular,” he said.

A percentage of sponsorship money raised by Rotary will go to Moruya Cancer Carers as well as a percentage of the gate and bar, depending on their performance on the day.

There will also be raffles and other fundraising activities.
