It will be a case of north versus south on Sunday when Police officers from Wollongong and Lake Illawarra Area Commands line up against each other on the footy field for Police Legacy
Police Association Wollongong branch administrator Sgt Bob Minns said the sixth annual Graeme Donnelly Cup will be played at Collies Sports Ground. Gates open at 12.30 and the public is invited to the fun family day for a good cause.
“This year we are raising money for the NSW Police Legacy Trust Funds for the children left behind,” Sgt Minns said.
“We are also supporting the Police Benevolent Fund which helps police families or retired police in financial/welfare difficulties. We are also supporting local PCYC and have a goal of $12,000”.
Lake Illawarra presently leads four games to two.
But Wollongong is eager to win the next two.
But most importantly the day has turned into a great community engagement activity that has raised over $60,000 for local families.
Sgt Minns said the day would not be possible without the support of organisations such as Nikolovski Lawyers, H. Parsons Funeral Directors, Remondis, Police Bank. 1st Choice Mechanical, Collegians Rugby League Football Club, Fernhill Smash, Gala Trophies, Alexander Michaels Menswear, Pro Uniforms and Embroidery, Music by Serifina, Triple Zero Medals and Wollongong Rotary.
