Our current collectors have the opportunity to add to their collection or someone could start a new collection. We know that many people will be keen to secure one of these Constable T Bears so we felt that an auction provided the fairest opportunity for all.

Ararat Blue Ribbon Foundation branch 20th anniversary

Posted by: Blue Ribbon Foundation

On Friday 27 May, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of our Ararat Blue Ribbon Foundation Branch at their annual Blue Ribbon Gala Dinner.

The Branch is led by a group of committed volunteers who generously give their time to honour the fallen and raise funds for the local Eastern Grampians Health Service for life saving facilities and equipment dedicated in honour of fallen Victoria Police members. At the Gala Dinner, we also celebrated the enormous contribution of the inaugural Branch President Terry Weeks who served from 2002 to 2022 until he passed away in February. His legacy will continue.

The local community and businesses including ACE Radio and AME Systems who support the Branch, turned out in force to help celebrate the 20th anniversary and raise funds to purchase a new X Ray machine for the local hospital.

Branch President Dianne Radford announced the Branch has achieved the incredible milestone of raising $1 million to honour fallen Victoria Police members. An amazing outcome for a small group of volunteers working together with their local community.
