The Helping Hand Fund is a Trust set up by the GOTBA and funded by monies collected by the two city clubs in Melbourne – Sandown Greyhound Racing Club and The Meadows Greyhound Racing Association.

Team leaders have contributed $5k each to the Helping Hand Fund raising $50k.

The current balance of the fund will be used for the initial set up for beneficiaries i.e those owners and trainers and persons so connected that suffer injuries, illness and/or generally suffering financial hardship that effect their greyhounds training or racing.

The trustees are considering an expansion of the fund.
