Following on from the success of the GP Stakes last year where more than $40,000 was raised to help fund a general practitioner to the Dungog Shire, the JT Stakes money will go towards the ongoing restoration of the historic theatre.

Chairman of the committee Kim Wright said it was a fantastic day, despite being postponed due to heavy rain earlier in March.

“It was great to see 19 teams from across the shire come together to have fun and at the same time raise money for one of the shire’s historic buildings,” Mr Wright said.

“It is good to see the funds raised being used to improve local facilities.”
