Two local Rotary clubs have made a generous donation to Police Legacy as part of the St Marys Police Officer of the Year Awards.
The presidents of Wallacia and St Marys Rotary clubs handed over $4500 to St Marys police Inspector Branko Kubecka at a club meeting last Tuesday night.
Funds were raised by the awards night dinner held at St Marys Rugby League Club in April. Since the awards were established eight years ago, St Marys and Wallacia Rotary clubs have donated more than $39,000 to Police Legacy.
“These donations could not be possible without the great sponsorship and support of local businesses and the local press,” St Marys Rotary Club’s Chris Miller said.
“The award night was a great success where four major awards were handed out to officers who were outstanding in 2016.
“It was very hard to select finalists as all the officers nominated deserve to be commended for their hard work keeping us safe.”
