Horses carrying the Koru Care Southland colours to victory at Ascot Park on Saturday will each earn $100 for the organisation's charitable trust.

The racing colours are registered with New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing by trainer and Southland Racing Club president Sean Bellew. He is a board member of the Invercargill Licensing Trust, which sponsors Koru Care Southland.

''The Southland Racing Club will donate $100 to Koru Care for every winner in their colours,'' Bellew said.

The Koru Care Southland Charitable Trust funds overseas holidays for children with illnesses and disabilities. Fundraising is done by Southland volunteers.

Bellew is organising horses to carry the colours on Saturday.

Koru Care Southland chairman Chris Reynolds has gained permission to sell raffle tickets on course for a 4.26m (14ft) boat, donated by Stabicraft Marine, and 20 other prizes.

Tickets are $10 and money raised will pay for 10 children to travel to Disneyland in August.

''All the money stays in Southland for Southland children,'' Mr Reynolds said.

''I hope people can bring an extra $10 with them on Saturday.''

Koru Care Southland has given overseas holidays to more than 500 children.
