Coppers, firies, ambos and other emergency service workers are encouraging people to get out on the greens this Sunday, October 22, for the Lismore 000 Charity Sports Day, which raises money for these vital community services.
Getting ready for the event are (l-r) Crystal Maher from the NSW Fire Brigade, Jimmy Keogh from the Life Saver Rescue Helicopter, Paul Martin from Lismore Ambulance, Ian Leckie from the SES, Senior Constables Peter (Nudge) Ellis and Neville Graham from Lismore Police, and John Graham from Tullera Fire Briagde (front).
The day starts at 9am with lawn bowls at East Lismore Bowls Club, at a cost of $10, which includes morning tea. If youre keen for more sporting adventure after that, transport will be provided to the Lismore Golf Club for an afternoon of golf, a sausage sizzle and a thirst quencher, all for just $25.
Money raised during the day is divided between the six emergency services, with Lismore Police donating its share to the 2LM Childrens Christmas Appeal and the NSW Fire Brigade giving its money to Our Kids.
And you certainly dont have to be a professional bowler or a golfer to join up.
Youll stand out on the day if youre a pro, said Senior Constable Neville Graham. Its a day designed for novices and for the emergency services to get together and have a bit of fun.
There will be raffles, prizes galore for everyone and an auction at the end of the day of a framed and signed Wallabies jersey.
To register for the bowls morning phone 6621 5098 or for more information contact Crystal on 0419 275 840.
