Manchester, Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium is an ideal venue for fund-raising and charity events. Many local and national organisations and good causes have organised successful events raising substantial amounts of money.
There is a great range of packages to choose from, all of which are available at special charity and fund-raising discount rates.
Over the years at Belle Vue, and at our other GRA tracks around the country, we have worked with some great national charities including The Woodland Trust, various cancer groups and of course our very own Retired Greyhound Trust which runs a number of events throughout the year.
There are several ways in which you can raise funds during a night at the dogs and below are a few suggestions to help you maximise your funds.
We can help you stage an event during your evening, for example a human race around the track is a favourite with fund-raisers and race-goers alike.
Businesses, individuals or groups, can be invited to sponsor a presentation race for a minimum donation e.g. £100 per race. As the charity pays just £30 to cover trophy and other costs that’s £70 raised per race. Usually there are 12 to 13 races during the evening, with potential funds raised at around £840 to £910.
On average a programme of racing will include 78 greyhounds during the evening. You can invite guests to nominate a greyhound. At £10.00 per nomination that’s £780.00 raised. You will need to provide a sponsored prize for each race. The nominator of the winning greyhound in each race wins the prize. Race Programme Advertising Sell advertising space to sponsors. The charity or fund-raisers pay between £40 to £100.
We are delighted to allow stadium-wide charity collections or host a raffle for sponsored prizes selling tickets to anyone in the stadium. Our commentator will assist on the night publicising the event.
Or try an auction with sponsored prizes (only available in Executive Suites). Working together it is possible to raise as much as £5000 per night.
