Police ball to raise charity funds

BUNDABERG Police are aiming high with their eyes set on raising much-needed funds for life-saving organisations this weekend at the annual Police Charity Ball.

Police Inspector Kev Guteridge said funds raised at this year’s event would go toward the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter and the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Insp. Guteridge said about $13,000 was raised at last year’s event and he hoped more could be raised this year.

“It’s a great night that contributes in enhancing the safety of the Bundaberg community,” he said. “I encourage everyone to get behind them, not just for the Police Ball but all year round.”

Tickets are $85 and include three-course meal, live entertainment and memorabilia auction.

The event will be held at Brothers Sports Club on Saturday night from 6pm until about midnight, and ticket sales will end at 4pm today.

To book, phone 4153 9111 or head to the Bundaberg Police Station.
