Emergency round of golf reaps rewards

Attending the cheque handover from the Lismore 000 Charity Sports Day recently were (l-r) Constable Neville Graham (Lismore Police), Phillip Gibson (Life Saver Rescue Helicopter), Amanda Vidler (SES), Rebekka Battista (Our Kids), Crystal Maher (NSW Fire Brigade), Paul Martin (Lismore Ambulance) and Chris Lodge (2LM Childrens Christmas Appeal).

The recent Lismore 000 Charity Sports Day held at the Lismore Golf Club and East Lismore Bowls Club was a huge success, and representatives from the participating emergency services recently got together to hand over cheques to the designated charities.

Around $6000 was raised and the money was shared equally between the Life Saver Rescue Hospital, the SES, Lismore Ambulance, Lismore Police and the NSW Fire Brigade. In a show of generosity, the Lismore Police donated its share to the 2LM Childrens Christmas Appeal while the NSW Fire Brigade handed over their proceeds to Our Kids.

It was a fantastic day, said NSW Fire Brigades Crystal Maher, and it brings the total amount of money raised over the three years weve been running the event to $19,000, which isnt a bad effort.
