Team Teal Appeal Ends On A High

The support of Southlanders for Team Teal over the past few weeks has been a great demonstration of their generosity.

On Saturday at Wyndham the Robin Dundee Club presented Team Teal Southland Ambassador Ellie Barron with a cheque for $1,400.

That money was raised at the Winton Harness Meeting from a luncheon with guest Southern Steel legend Wendy Frew, as well as from a number of other fundraising initiatives.

“We took the donation buckets around, gave $50 to every female driver that won that day (Ellie Barron – twice, Sheree Tomlinson and Kirstin Barclay) plus fifty dollars to every winning filly or mare (Lilac Becky, Seekie Monkey, Cheezal and Carnegie Hall),” said Robin Dundee spokesperson Gail Paisley.

At the Northern Southland Trotting Club meeting recently $1,745.20  was raised through the Celebrity Race which was one of the highlights of the day.

In all $8,047.30 was donated for Team Teal in Southland. A great effort!
