Emergency round of golf reaps rewards
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.
