Blue Ribbon Day 2020

Posted by: Blue Ribbon Foundation

Blue Ribbon Day is 29 September, which coincides with National Police Remembrance Day.

Blue Ribbon Day is a chance for the community to say thank you to those who protect and serve our community and ensure that those who have fallen are never forgotten.

This year it means more than ever. 2020 has been a difficult year and it has been especially challenging for Victoria Police, tragically losing four members in April and now supporting our efforts in the fight against COVID-19.

We hope you will support our campaign to remember the 170 Victoria Police Officers who have died in the line of duty and say thank you to all Victoria Police officers for their work in serving & protecting our community.

COVID 19 Appeal

Posted by: Blue Ribbon Foundation

The Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation has a long history of supporting hospitals throughout Victoria.  In fact, the Foundation has just dedicated its 57th living memorial, named in honour of a member/s of Victoria Police who died protecting our community.  Each and every hospital project aims to do just that – remember lives by saving others.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic,  now more than ever, we need to all work together as communities to support our hospitals and dedicated health care teams.

After consulting with a number of hospitals we know that the most important equipment is going to be ventilators and other respiratory and emergency equipment. So, we’ve launched an appeal so that Victorians who are able to, can make a contribution to help buy more of this vital equipment for their LOCAL hospital.

100% of the donations will be given to the hospitals nominated to support their lifesaving work during this health crisis.
