The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation Gippsland Branch has been running since 2003. During that time, the branch has held many successful events including Inside Story at the old Traralgon Court House, Police Invade Walhalla, Gippsland Emergency Services Ball, and many successful visits to primary schools with Constable T Bear.
The branch has also organised Police Code 1 band concerts for school students, and Pipe band concerts for the community. Golf Days have been run and provided large donations to the Gippsland Branch of the Foundation.
We have made available Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation merchandise at the annual Morwell Police District Christmas Concert featuring the ever popular Victoria Police Pipe and Show Bands.
We have attended many community neighbourhood functions with Constable T Bear and had Constable T Bears available for purchase at fundraising events including charity days for the Latrobe Regional Hospital Cancer Care Centre.
The Branch has been continually working towards projects with Latrobe Regional Hospital and striving to work with other hospitals throughout the Gippsland area in order to enhance their service delivery.
For many years the annual Blue Ribbon Stall at the Mid Valley Shopping centre has been a huge success, due to the terrific support of Mid Valley Centre Management.
The support shown by the community towards the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation over the years has been tremendous. The conversations and support shown by community members and business holders over the years is very valued.
