Over 500 people came out to support the BHP Insurances Champion Hurdle Fundraising Lunch in aid of Chernobyl Children International.

Adi Roche, Founder & CEO of Chernobyl Children International (CCI) joined Mark Phelan, Managing Director, BHP Insurances to greet guests for a day of food, wine racing and fundraising in aid of the charity at the Leopardstown Pavillion which offers unrivalled views of all the exciting racing action.

The BHP Insurances Champion Hurdle is one of the most exciting days on the Irish racing calendar and this year the proceeds will go towards CCI’s Medical Care Programme, including child cardiac surgeries for children on waiting lists for operations in the Chernobyl regions.
