British Greyhound Racing Fund receives voluntary contibutions from licensed bookmakers and supports and develops greyhound racing in Britain as licensed by the Greyhound Board of Great Britain: www.gbgb.org.uk.
BGRF grants cover all aspects of welfare, integrity, prize money, development and promotion of the sport and the Fund works closely with the GBGB. In the financial year 2016-17, just over £7.5m was collected from bookmakers' voluntary contributions.
Bookmakers are requested to pay 0.6% of their greyhound turnover to BGRF under the current agreement with the Association of British Bookmakers (ABB). For the smaller bookmakers who cannot accurately estimate their greyhound turnover, we can accept a payment based on the average LBO turnover for greyhound racing of 13.3%. This percentage is sourced from the latest Gambling Commission statistics and we'd like to encourage more operators to take advantage of this.
For those bookmakers who are not currently contributing to the BGRF, we provide information on how to do so here.
