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

Team leaders will contribute $5k each 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 generally suffering financial hardship that effect their greyhounds training or racing.

The trustees are considering an expansion of the fund.
