During the course of the year, Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium plays host to a number of charity events for registered charities. Sponsored charity events always prove extremely popular with local and national Companies, allowing them to not only make a worthy donation but to benefit from the associated publicity and promotion. There are many ways of raising Funds and our Marketing Department will be happy to help you to develop a comprehensive Fundraising strategy to maximize the financial return for your charity and minimize your work load.
We can offer Restaurant or Private Room Dining Charity Packages at a discounted rate, which you sell for face value or premium rate.
In addition to the dining packages we can offer you free admission tickets for your chosen Charity night which your charity is entitled to sell at face value, or at a premium rate. All we ask is that there is a minimum of 60 people on a dining package attending your event.
You can invite sponsorship from groups, individuals or businesses. To sponsor you’d sell a race prior to your night for a minimum donation of say £100 per race. We will charge you a discounted rate for the race sponsorship in order for you to maximize return to the charity. For this the sponsor can name the race, have this printed in the race programme, the party sponsoring the race would go trackside to present the winning greyhound owner with a trophy (supplied by us). You’d have a presentation photograph taken with the winning greyhound.
On average there are 12 races with 6 greyhounds running in each race. In advance of the night, you can invite sponsors for each greyhound running on your charity night for say £5 or £10. You will need a sponsored prize for each race and the nominator of the greyhound winning each race wins the prize.
We can offer you Race Programme & Trackside Advertising to sell. We would offer you those at cost price so you can sell on at a premium price.
We also allow you to put any leaflets around the stadium for that night. When holding a full Charity event with us, we also allow Bucket Collections at the end of the night as all customers are leaving the stadium.
On occasions we have held a Charity Human Race for larger parties. You’d need 6 (relatively fit people – sand is hard to run on for humans). You can charge them for racing – highest bidder maybe! They only race part of the track, chasing a human bunny to the winning line!
Our bookmakers have taken bets on these races in the past, once they’ve paid out the winners; they have given the rest of the proceeds to the charity. (subject to confirmation with bookmakers prior to the event).
