This week we’re organising events–  Greyhound racing !! and Cruise party. We’re also holding our traditional weekly event Coffee & Cakes.

WEEK 4 : Greyhound racing

Unimates Week 4 event should definitely mark the top of your “to do” list! Greyhound racing may not be a common from where you are from, but it is definitely an immensely popular sport in Australia. With an athletic build and muscular body, greyhounds are said to be the world’s fastest dogs.

Don’t miss this opportunity to watch live as these dogs prove their speed and agility to you! Let your hearts pound as you watch these hounds sprint to the finish line. Witness with your own eyes the fevour of Australian culture through an event that combines both their love for canines and their enthusiasm for sports.
