Save Moonee Ponds urgently needs your help.
SMP are currently participating in the Minister's Advisory Committee process for the assessment of the Racecourse's Master Plan. To be taken seriously, we are going to have to seek assistance from experts.
Soon we will need to put together our case for the Public Hearing and we need significant funds for representation. The Moonee Valley Racing Club will have a full stable of expert witnesses and a crack legal team to try to push their development through. We will need our own people to counteract them.
Our community group needs to raise $50,000 to ensure we are properly represented! You can help us by making a donation towards funds for a legal team and expert witnesses to strengthen our cause.
Given the enormity of the fundraising task ahead of us, we are asking for donations of $100 or more from our members and the public. We understand that not everyone will be able to manage $100, every little bit helps from $20 to $2,000, each donation gets us one step closer to our goal. We are grateful for every cent you can spare and we will spend this in pursuit of a fair deal for the community.
