Newbridge Greyhound Stadium has just announced that it has raised thousands of euro for the Irish Red Cross' (IRC) Ukraine Appeal.

Earlier this year, Greyhound Racing Ireland pledged to donating €1 from all activities over a seven day period at Greyhound Racing stadia nationwide to the IRC's Ukraine Appeal.

This included general admission, restaurant admission, trial fees & race entry fees.

This donation will go towards assisting the IRC's humanitarian work with Ukranian refugees.
