Hawkesbury Race Club’s latest race meeting saw Windsor Rotary Group’s charitable expectations smashed for their fifth annual race day.

A record $54,498 was raised throughout the day, with proceeds benefitting the Children’s Medical Research Institute, Children’s Cancer Institute and Hawkesbury-Colo Meals on Wheels.

Hawkesbury Race Club’s vice chairman Sid Kelly OAM, an active member of the Windsor Rotary and past president, was the emcee for the afternoon and was delighted with the community response.

“It is our most successful race day in five renewals and a fantastic result for all involved,” said Kelly.

Fellow Hawkesbury Race Club board member, John Gollan, another past president of the Windsor Rotary branch, said the support from local businesses made the fundamental difference.

Windsor Rotary was also proud to support Windsor High School’s P&C and their own Windsor Rotary Youth Foundation Trust.
