Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation Horsham branch has again joined forces with Woolworths to raise money for vital medical equipment for Wimmera Health Care Group. 

Branch secretary Kelly Schilling said each year Woolworths supported Blue Ribbon Foundation Day and National Police Remembrance Day, on September 29.

“We usually host barbecues and bake sales outside the Horsham store throughout September, but because of COVID-19 restrictions we obviously can’t do that at the moment,” she said. 

“Therefore, we have decided to fundraise through gold coin donations at the supermarket check-outs and we will also have badges for sale.

“This week, we have also launched a major raffle that will run until the middle of next month.”

Ms Schilling encouraged people to buy $2 raffle tickets at Woolworths to go in the running to win a wheelbarrow full of ‘goodies’.

“The items have all been donated by Woolworths and we are grateful for their ongoing support,” she said. 

“All money raised will go towards buying a Ranger blood and fluid warming machine for Wimmera Base Hospital’s emergency department.” 

The raffle will be drawn on October 11.
