Charlie Grech is currently breeding pigeons and welcomes businesses to sponsor one in the upcoming 2023 racing season. ​

The North Central Racing Pigeon Club is excited to announce that local businesses can now register to sponsor a pigeon for the 2023 racing season, which officially commences in August.

More than 20 businesses sponsored a pigeon with the club last year, including The Logo Lady Wallan, Cafe 41 Wallan and Wallan Fish and Chips.

Pigeons are being bred currently for the upcoming season, with hopes the community will get involved in the sport of racing pigeons via sponsorship.

More than 20 businesses in the district sponsored a pigeon with The North Central Racing Pigeon Club last year. ​

Founding member of the Kilmore Invitational Racing Pigeon Club Charlie Grech said the racing was a great opportunity for businesses to be more involved in their community and connect with one another.

Sponsorships for the 2023 racing season, which is currently expected to consist of 10 rounds, are $200.

Businesses sponsoring a pigeon will feature in the Review’s sports results, as well as on local radio station, OKR FM.
