SWAG went to the DOGS!

The Stanton Wick Action Group held their first Night at the Races in Swindon on Saturday and announced it A Winner!

Over 50 supporters joined the party at Swindon Stadium and were soon into the swing of it, shouting home their winners from their seat in the Stadium restaurant.

11 of the 12 races were generously sponsored by local businesses and individuals together with 36 greyhounds. Sue Osborne, the event organiser said

what a brilliant night, everyone had great fun with many winners amongst us. The guys at the Stadium did a great job, keeping our curry supper and drinks flowing, whilst sheparding our race sponsors onto the track to make their presentation. Once again the community supported and we raised over £2,000 – and had a lot of fun doing it.


Jacqui Darbyshire said

Great fun, great company and a great night. Not so profitable for me as I just could not find the winners, but next time! Thanks to the organisers and let’s do it again.


Clarke Osborne, Chairman of SWAG said

Another successful community event. Another fun event supported by great people. It is the story of the Stantons, Pensford and Publow and again I thank all the sponsors and supporters for being so generous.


Enormous thanks to our Race Sponsors;

  • PAC Construction – 01761 451551
  • Tony and Liz Heaford – Publow
  • Suzanne’s Nails

Thank you also to everyone who sponsored a greyhound, Filers coaches and everyone who went to the stadium.
