At rest with their daughter Aspen who died in 2019.


 

‘I hope you’re at peace now’: Read the gut-wrenching letter a wife wrote after her policeman husband’s death almost three years after their daughter died at just four months old

  • David Campbell tragically died on Saturday May 8, a day before Mother’s Day
  • He left behind wife Michelle daughters Harper and Meadow, and stepson Cooper
  • The tragedy comes just two years after their daughter Aspen died in 2019 
  • In an open letter, Michelle said her ‘heart would ache forever’ for her husband
  • A GoFundMe page has been launched to help support the family financially  

 

A heartbroken wife has penned a letter to her husband who took his final breath almost three years after their four-month-old daughter’s death.

David Campbell, a NSW police officer, died on May 8, a day before Mother’s Day, leaving behind his wife Michelle, their two daughters Harper and Meadow, and his stepson Cooper.

His death devastated his family who were still grieving of losing four-month-old Aspen in 2018.

In an open letter to David, Michelle described him as the ‘most gentle, loving and kind daddy’ and said she will miss him forever.

David CAMPBELL
in an open letter to David, Michelle described him as the ‘most gentle, loving and kind daddy’ and said she will miss him forever.

‘I never would have thought my heart would endure this much heartbreak in one lifetime,’ she wrote.

‘My heart is so heavy, so broken. I just can’t fathom how this is real, how you are no longer here on earth.’

Michelle said she was shocked by his sudden death and wished he could see how loved and missed he was already.

‘You and the kids are my whole world I don’t know how I will go on without you by my side, I know I will, have to for the kids but this is not the way it was suppose to be babe, we still had a lifetime together,’ she said.

‘I hope you are at peace now, I hope you have found our Aspen girl and are giving her the biggest hug. Cuddle her for me and tell her Mummy loves her.

‘I love you endlessly babe, I wish my love and the love of your girls could have kept you here with us.’

‘My heart will forever ache for you.’

Stacey Hollands, Michelle’s cousin, launched a GoFundMe page to help the family financially as she braces for the future without her husband.

The community rallied to support the family, with the fundraising campaign so far reaching $15,920 of its $100,000 goal.

The tragedy comes almost three years after the couple lost their four-month-old daughter Aspen in 2018

Tributes have begun pouring in on social media for the father-of-three, who was remembered as a ‘beautiful’ person.

‘My heart is absolutely shattered for you. David was such a beautiful daddy, husband and friend. He will be truly missed. RIP Dave,’ one friend wrote on Michelle’s Instagram page.

‘My heart and soul is broken today. I never ever would have thought one family, one beautiful family could possibly endure so much heartache. I will treasure every single memory of him,’ another person wrote.

Mr Jones was a NSW Police officer and the force is currently offering their support this his family

NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia it is offering support and welfare services to his family.

I would love all your support to help ease some financial stress on Michelle and her beautiful young family.

A note from Michelle below;

I never would have thought my heart would endure this much heartbreak in one lifetime.

My heart is so heavy, so broken my beautiful, sweet husband and the most gentle, loving and kind daddy to our 3 girls passed away yesterday.

I just can’t fathom how this is real, how you are no longer here on earth, I wish you could see how loved you are, how missed you already are.

You and the kids are my whole world I don’t know how I will go on without you by my side, I know I will, have to for the kids but this is not the way it was suppose to be babe, we still had a lifetime together.

I hope you are at peace now, I hope you have found our Aspen girl and are giving her the biggest hug, cuddle her for me and tell her Mummy loves her.

I love you endlessly babe, I wish my love and the love of your girls could have kept you here with us, my heart will forever ache for you.

Every single cent will help.

David CAMPBELL

Please help me help Michelle and her beautiful family for what’s ahead for her.

Sending you so much love Shell.

Rest Peacefully David, we will all miss you xx

EMERGENCY service workers, police, residents, community groups and students said no to domestic violence during the White Ribbon Day convoy through the Campbelltown and Macquarie Fields regions on Friday.

A convoy of 10 vehicles carrying Campbelltown police, State Emergency Service members, Campbelltown Council staff as well as Burnside, Family and Community Services and Centrelink workers travelled from AB Central in Airds, to Campbelltown TAFE and Macarthur Square to spread the anti-violence message.

A similar convoy carrying groups including Macquarie Fields police travelled from Glenquarie Town Centre and visited Minto Marketplace and Eagle Vale Marketplace.

The two convoys met at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in a show of support before men took the White Ribbon Day oath to say no to violence against women.

Attendees also took part in a tug of war to build comraderie.

Campbelltown police domestic violence officer Sen-Constable Carolynn Walters said the day was excellent and a great opportunity to raise awareness that there is no place in the community for domestic violence and violence against women.

“Everyone came together on the day for this very important issue,’’ she said.

“When we were driving around there were always people there supporting us on the route.’’

Now in its third year, the convoy aims to foster community cohesion, trust and respect for all participants.

It’s with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Marty Hogan. As you all know Marty was battling cancer for the past few years. He passed away on Saturday 10th April with his family by his side.
Marty was a great long term student & a Hapkido black belt. A wonderful close friend to Master King & Mrs Shantal. He developed many close friendships to those he trained alongside. He was also a strong inspiration to many.
We know our whole KMA community will be just as heartbroken to hear this news.
Our deepest condolences to his wife Jane, daughter Maya and their family & friends.

(20+) KMA Brisbane – Posts | Facebook


 

We are raising funds to assist our friend, colleague, husband, father, teacher, police officer and all round top bloke, Marty Hogan.  He and his family are battling an aggressive form of Cancer and Marty has entered the fight of his life.

In December 2019, after returning from a hiking holiday Marty was fatigued, sleeping up to 15 hours each day. Incessant coughing repeatedly caused him to vomit and fight for his next breath. He started losing weight – fast.   Days later, the family sat together in the Gold Coast University Hospital, devastated from the shock diagnosis: Marty had Stage four Metastatic Bowel Cancer which had spread extensively to his liver.

Marty’s decline was rapid. He commenced chemotherapy immediately. His wife Jane and daughter Maya (14) stayed by his side providing love, encouragement and support as he fights the battle of a lifetime.

Their story

Marty and Jane met 2010. It was a wonder their relationship ever survived. On their first romantic getaway for a weekend up in the mountains, Marty wooed Jane with a first course of oysters. One hour later, inside their cabin (with very thin walls) Marty and Jane succumbed to the disastrous biological effects of rotten oysters. Marty thought they would never survive the undignified encounter but for Jane, she had found her soul-mate. Marty was unlike anyone she had every known – protective, determined, open, honest and a bit of a clown, she couldn’t help but fall for him.

Marty’s passion in sport is Hapkido, a Korean martial art with emphasis on self-defence. Marty trains and assists junior students, he holds a provisional black belt and Maya proudly trains alongside him with a red tip belt. Jane is the newest member of the Hapkido family, working towards a blue belt.  At the end of each week, Marty usually enjoys the solace of a few beers while strumming his ukulele, listening to country music or hitting the local karaoke bar (much to Maya’s dismay). He is a man of integrity who holds his friends and family close to his heart.

Marty is a Sergeant in the Queensland Police. He has worked in many roles within the service and has dedicated his life to serving and protecting. Now Marty finds himself in uncertain times, vulnerable and requiring reciprocation of the public’s assistance. Marty is a proud man who does not readily seek nor ask for help. His love and unconditional commitment to Jane and Maya is inspirational and like most cops, he is always the first in line when needed.

Your assistance with escalating expenses for medical treatment, household and financial commitments will give them the gift of time and the ability to walk this journey together. Please donate to this heartbreaking situation; any donation no matter how small will be truly appreciated.

Any money kindly donated on this page will go directly to Marty, supporting him where it is needed most. If you are not in a position to be able to contribute, please share this link.

Marty has had a 2 month break from chemo after some nasty side effects that landed him in hospital in early August.
The break was wonderful and we had a little family holiday in September while he was looking and feeling so much better.
However yesterday we found out his cancer has progressed with new lesions in his liver and he is restarting Chemo today.
A blow to his great progress to date, we are sad but ok and preparing for the next fight.

Marty is now also focused on finalising tasks around our family home to ease the burden down the track. He has recently arranged for installation of security cameras and is now planning to have our house painted.

Marty continues to have chemotherapy and is fortunately tolerating the treatment well for now. We have just enjoyed some precious time with Maya during the school holidays. Treasured time with family and friends during the winter break have left us in good spirits.

We are so overwhelmed by your kindness and support, we can not thank you enough nor convey the impact it has had on our family. You have given us time together and made life a little simpler. We have received a wave of love we were not expecting nor felt we deserved.
Thank you.

We will continue to maintain the GoFunfMe page so we can stay in contact and keep you updated on Marty’s journey.

Sunday 4 August 1901, page 1

 

The death of Senior-constable William Sutherland, of the Glebe Police Station, on Monday, recalls the tragic death of his brother, also a constable, in June, 1889.

He was on duty at Macleay-street, Potts Point, when he saw a man jump over the fence of Mr. Bundle’s residence, Pomeroy.

He challenged him ; a scuffle ensued, and Sutherland was mortally wounded with a revolver shot.

A Victorian criminal, James Morrison, was executed for the murder.

Death Follows a Blow.

Senior-constable Sutherland, attached to No. 2 police division, died in Sydney on Monday.

The deceased, who was about 45 years of age, had been in the police force of the State for about 19 years, having joined the service in New South Wales after having spent several years in the New Zealand force.

A few years back he was struck on the head while engaged in making an arrest in Sydney, but he seemed to get well, and very little notice was taken of the blow.

Apparently a clot had gradually formed in the head.

Sutherland went off duty some 13 months ago, and although his case had the best medical attention he gradually wasted away and expired.

THE LATE SENIOR-CONSTABLE SUTHERLAND.

The remains of the late Senior-constable Sutherland were interred at Rookwood Cemetery yesterday afternoon, in the presence of a number of officers and men of the police force and many other personal friends.

The proceedings commenced with a short service in the house, conducted by the Rev. T. E. Clouston, after which the coffin was conveyed by train to the Necropolis.

The procession to the grave was headed by the New South Wales Police Band, led by senior-constable Mankey, which played the Dead March in “Saul” with muffled drums.

The coffin was carried by four constables, and was covered with wreaths, many being carried also by relatives and friends.

Among those sending them were the deceased’s children. Inspector and Mrs. Sutherland, Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland ( Croydon Park ), the non-commissioned officers and men of Glebe police station and those of No. 2 station, Mr. E. Miller, Mr. Smithson and family, and Messrs. and Mesdames Bannerman, Wagner, H. P. Stewart, Gibbons, and W. MacQueen.

The police force was represented by Inspector Sutherland, Sub-inspector Mitchell, Sergeants Thompson, Smith, Miller, Grice, Taylor, Curtis, Bradley, and O’Dea, and a large number of senior and first-class constables.

No. 8 Lodge. P.A.F.S.A. and six of its officers, the members being unable to muster and follow in full force.

There were also present, among intimate friends and neighbors, Messrs. Anderson, Field, Smithson, Blackman, Bannerman, Sutherland, Kuse (2), Grayson, Holes, Edwards, and Malling. Masters Thorpe and Vaughan, and Mesdames Wagner and Bowyer.

The service was conducted by the Rev. T. E. Clouston, who after reading the ordinary burial service delivered a short address, in which he highly eulogised the deceased.

The band, as a finale, played Chopin’s “Funeral March,” the assemblage remaining bareheaded till its conclusion.

The Murdered Constable.

The Inquest.

SYDNEY, Wednesday.

The inquest on the body of Constable David Sutherland, who was shot by a burglar at Potts Point, was commenced yesterday afternoon.

The prisoner, James Morrison, was in custody, handcuffed.

There was a crowded court.

Morrison is a powerful fellow, 28 years of age, and the mark of a heavy blow over the left eye is still visible.

Constable William Sutherland identified the body as that of his cousin. He was a native of Canterbury, New Zealand. He was a single man. His mother, three sisters, and four brothers were living there.

Medical evidence showed that the bullet severed the main artery of the groin.

Benjamin Backhouse, architect, residing at Potts Point, deposed that he was awakened by the reports of a shot. On hearing the second shot, he also heard cries for help. He then saw a man running away. The man was of similar appearance as prisoner. A fence over which the man scrambled was examined afterwards and showed blood marks.

Further evidence similar to that reported already was also given.

The inquiry is still proceeding.

Melbourne, Wednesday.

The Melbourne police have identified the photograph of James Morrison, who is charged with the murder of Constable Sutherland, as that of a man known to them as Jackson, who has recently done two and a half-years in Victoria for an impudent forgery.

Alleged Assault by the Police.

Senior-constable Thomas Grice and Constable William Sutherland were summoned in the Central Police Court this morning charged with assaulting John Brunty on the night of the 12th instant.

Plaintiff swore that he was leaving his brother’s public-house on the night in question, when defendant Grice stopped him, and asked what he had under his arm.

The two defendants then seized both his arms, and beat them behind his back, in consequence of which he has not been able to work since.

William Brunty, brother of plaintiff, Patrick Smith, Mrs. Brunty, wife of William Brunty, gave corroborative evidence.

For the defence Thomas Grice, senior-constable of police, stated that on the night in question he, in company with Constable Sutherland, was on duty at the back of the Lady of the Lake Hotel, and met the plaintiff.

Defendant took hold of his arm, and asked him to hand out what he had under his coat, and did not hurt him.

Witness was severely cross-examined by Mr. Levien.

William Sutherland and Mr. F. Wilkinson gave evidence as to the zeal and good conduct of the defendants.

Man charged over Vic officer’s bike death

by Callum Godde
23 February 2021

A man has been charged after an off-duty police officer was knocked off his bike and killed in regional Victoria last year.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox was killed on November 12 when a car allegedly struck his bicycle at Sea Lake in Victoria’s northwest.

The driver stopped to render assistance but the 42-year-old died at the scene.

A 57-year-old Sea Lake man was charged with culpable driving on Tuesday by major collision investigation detectives.

He was bailed to appear at the Mildura Magistrates Court on May 18.

Mr Cox worked at Sea Lake’s one-person local police station for eight years and was described as a “well-respected and admired”
community member.

Family’s tribute for Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox killed while cycling at Sea Lake

The heartbroken family of a Victoria Police officer killed while riding his bike have paid tribute to a “wonderful father” with a passion for serving his local community.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Michael Cox, 47, tragically died when he was hit by a car while cycling on the outskirts of Sea Lake in northwest Victoria on November 12.

Senior Constable Cox’s death has sent shockwaves through the Sea Lake community where he had worked at the one-person station for the past eight years.

The popular and much-loved copper had close ties to the locals, having grown up in the Mallee region on his parents’ farm with his three sisters and two brothers.

He also had extended family in the area and was a champion footballer and past president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club.

His wife Selina said her husband touched many lives in the community and they were very thankful for the outpouring of support they had received since his death.

“We all loved him very much, he was a great dad. He regularly joked to everyone I was the luckiest woman alive,” she said.

Younger brother Phillip Cox said Constable Cox was an “old fashioned country cop” who was proud of his uniform and what it meant.

Colleague and close friend, Sergeant Brad Fowler, said it was his “dream job” was to work at a single member station, with Sea Lake his number one choice having grown up in the area.

“He policed by earning respect so that his community tried to mostly do the right thing so they didn’t put him in a bad position,” Mr Cox said.

“We heard a young man earlier this week refuse a drink as he had to drive home and he wasn’t going to let Coxy down.

“He trusted everyone and saw the best in those who made mistakes. He was patient and kind, as well as cheeky. Kids loved him and he was a brother to so many.”

Mr Cox said that was probably the reason why he had the least arrests and gave out the fewest fines during one year while based at Swan Hill police station.

He said Constable Cox adored his wife Selina, “the absolute love of his life”, and was the proud dad of Shauna, 20, Hannah, 17 and Jacob, 11.

“Shauna and Hannah were his two princesses and Jacob his right hand man,” Mr Cox said.

“Second only to Selina and the kids was his love of fishing and camping and (he) shared this with them.”

Constable Cox will also be remembered across the community as the legendary footballer who won four senior premierships with Berri-Culgoa, coached Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers and was later president after the two clubs merged.

Lifelong friend and current president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club, Colin Durie, said Constable Cox and wife Selina were “enormous” for the local club.

“He was a very modest man, he never looked for accolades, he was just happy doing his thing, keeping under the radar and just getting it done,” Mr Durie said.

“It’s just been a massive shock, it’s going to be hard to find someone else like him for our small community that’s going to put so much back into it … it’s just going to leave a massive hole.

“When he started policing he wasn’t here and the opportunity came up with the position at Sea Lake and I think he was extremely proud to get back and work in the community he’d grown up in and obviously loved.”

Constable Cox was off duty when he was struck by a car on the Sea Lake-Lascelles Road about 8am on November 12.

He had spent 12 years working with Victoria Police in the Western Division and was also based at Swan Hill police station during his career.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the crash. The driver of the car stopped at the scene and assisted police. No charges have been laid.

A GoFundMe fundraiser to support Constable Cox’s family has so far raised more than $60,000.

Off-duty policeman Dennis Cox killed in cycling crash in Victoria

A tight-knit Victorian community is mourning the tragic death of its much-loved sole policeman, described by locals as a ‘true copper’.

 

The sole policeman of a tight-knit Victorian community who was tragically killed while cycling is being remembered as an “all round good bloke” and “true copper”.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox, 47, was riding his bike when he was hit by a car on the outskirts of Sea Lake in northwest Victoria on Thursday morning.

Senior Constable Cox’s death has sent shockwaves through the Sea Lake community where he had worked at the one-person station for the past eight years.

The popular and much-loved police officer had grown up in the Mallee region, had extended family in the area and was a past president of the Sea Lake Nandaly Tigers Football Netball Club.

Local councillor and Sea Lake tourism business operator David Vis told NCA NewsWire “everybody knew” Constable Cox and it would be a great loss for the community.

“He cared a lot about the local community, he was heavily involved in voluntary work as well as with the football club,” he said.

“There’s a lot of things he did over and above his police work, and he will very sadly missed by the community.

“The community hurts when these types of things happen, it’s affected the town quite badly and he’s going to be sorely missed.”

Constable Cox was off duty when he was struck by a car on the Sea Lake-Lascelles Road about 8am on Thursday.

He had spent 12 years working with Victoria Police in the Western Division and was also based at Swan Hill police station during his career.

Local community members have placed ribbons and flowers on the Sea Lake police station fence as a sign of respect to their “much-loved member of the community”.

Former police officer and Sea Lake Men’s Shed secretary Geoff McGuigan said Constable Cox was “an excellent officer and a good man”.

“We were blessed to have you here. RIP. You will be missed,” he posted on Facebook.

Advance Sea Lake Inc community group said Constable Cox was “more then (sic) our ‘local copper’”.

“A community member, family man, all round good bloke,” they posted.

“‘Sea Lake 208, log us off thanks’, that was him, every shift,” another mourner wrote. “We will miss you mate.”

“A true copper and friend of Sea Lake residents,” local Peter Arrowsmith wrote.

Another friend wrote that Constable Cox was “a wonderful ex-neighbour, family friend, such a character, so sadly missed by all”.

“We are just devastated for Dennis’ big beautiful family … you wouldn’t find a more loving and decent family,” they said.

In a statement, Victoria Police extended its deepest sympathy and condolences to Constable Cox’s immediate and extended family and friends.

Leading Senior Constable Dennis Cox was a well respected and admired member of the Sea Lake community, working at the community’s one-person station for the past eight years,” they said.

Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives are investigating the crash. The driver of the car stopped at scene and assisted police.

His death comes several months after the Eastern Freeway crash that killed Constable Glen Humphris, Senior Constable Kevin King, Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor and Constable Joshua Prestney.

COBAR —

An unusual incident occurred at the Regent Theatre, Cobar, recently, when a lady resident, who was enjoying the pictures, was hit with an egg.  She had some knitting which she was doing, when, to her great surprise, she felt a sudden blow on the chest. On investigation she found she had been hit with an egg. Luckily, the yoke did not break, or her beautiful frock and knitting would have been ruined.

The matter was reported to the police, and Constable Megaw questioned a number of boys at the pictures, without finding who threw the egg.

The police were later informed that two eggs were purchased at a nearby shop while the pictures were in process, and as a result, they expect to be able to take appropriate action against the egg thrower.

This is a song I ( Tom Longford ) started writing for Renee when she was first diagnosed with Angiosarcoma.

After completing the first verse, I had optimistically hoped that each subsequent verse would be brighter than the last, and that the song would eventually include a happy ending.

Unfortunately, I was never given the opportunity to add anything positive for the rest of Renee’s battle.

I finished the song after we lost Renee and shared it with our Parents and our Brother.

I hope to one day record it properly with my band – but at this stage, if you’re interested in listening, you’ll just be hearing a version recorded via web-mic on my laptop.

Renee Anne LONGFORD


 

Sergeant Longford, of Picton, died on January 24 after battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer since late 2010.

She served as a police officer for 14 years and worked at Liverpool and Cabramatta before she began working at Bowral in 2008.

Superintendent Worboys said Sergeant Longford would be remembered as an excellent communicator who was positive about her duties, with no task ever too big or small.

“Sergeant Longford was the sort of officer that police commanders just want to have around,” he said.

“Renee was just as good at chasing and catching criminals as she was comforting victims of crime.

“She will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with her family.”

‘Humbling’ farewell to policewoman

Sgt Longford died on January 24 after battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer since late 2010.

She served as a police officer for 14 years and worked at Liverpool and Cabramatta before she began working at Bowral in 2008.

Sgt Longford and husband Peter Cotton, a police officer based at Picton, have three children, Dean, Jake and two-year-old Emma.

Sgt Cotton said his wife was also step mother to two of his children from a previous relationship.

About 500 people attended the service at St John’s Anglican Church in Camden, among those Sgt Longford’s colleagues, some wearing plain clothes and others in uniform.

Sgt Cotton said the rain stopped when his wife was brought to the family home before the funeral and the wet weather held off until after the service.

A police guard of honour saluted Sgt Longford as she was taken into the church and Sgt Cotton said it was only when leaving that he realised how many people had come to pay their respects to his wife.

“They lined the road way and it surprised me on the way out because I knew how many people we had left behind (in the church).

“I’ve done a lot of police funerals in my time and it was one of the biggest I had been to let alone been involved with.”

Sgt Cotton said a second service was then held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Leppington, where the police guard of honour continued the display respect.

He said Goulburn LAC commander Superintendent Gary Worboys and family friends Ben and Tim Mallott were among those who spoke about Sgt Longford at the service.

Supt Worboys said Sgt Longford’s funeral was a fitting tribute to her dedication to her job as a police officer.

He said Sgt Longford would be remembered as an excellent communicator that was positive about her duties, with no task ever too big or small.

“Sgt Longford was the sort of officer that police commanders just want to have around,” he said.

“Renee was just as good at chasing and catching criminals as she was comforting victims of crime.

“She will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with her family.”

Sgt Cotton said the service was the best the family could have hoped for.

“It was quite humbling and quite fitting.

“I’m very proud that she’d touched the hearts of so many people.”

Officer fights against cancer

The Bowral police sergeant, who has been off work since September last year, dropped in on some of her colleagues last week to thank them and the community for all the money raised to help her family.

A fundraising dinner at Mittagong RSL last November along with a host of smaller events and donations raised $47,255.

The family lives in Picton and a fundraising bowls day, where everyone was asked to don Ms Longford’s favourite colour yellow, was another success last December.

Ms Longford’s partner Peter Cotton, also a police officer , has retuned to work at Camden. The couple have five children between them.

The couple has three children, including a one-year-old, and Mr Cotton has two children from a previous relationship.

The 33-year-old has been an officer for 13 years and served at Liverpool and Cabramatta before moving to Bowral as a sergeant in October, 2008.

Ms Longford used the visit to publicly thank the Highlands community.

“Thanks to the business community for their donations and all my colleagues who have been fantastic,” she said.

“Thanks to Graeme Day for hosting the night and Tony Fountain for running the auction.”

Ms Longford has undergone six rounds of chemotherapy and she said the cancer around her hips and spine has stopped growing.

She said she was considering using an experimental kidney transplant drug that could help.

While she would never walk the beat again she was focused on getting back to work.

“I’d love to get back to work,” she said.

Bowral colleague Jill Linford said the station had been overwhelmed by the support the community had shown.

“It’s really, really nice,” she said.

Sergeant Darren Farr, one of the longest serving officers at Bowral, said he didn’t realise how much support was out in the community for the police.

Summer Cruise Benefit Night

Saturday 15 January 2011

The Club hosted a Cruise Night on Saturday 15 January 2011 with proceeds going to Renee Longford, the daughter of one of our life members, John Longford.

​Renee was recently diagnosed with an aggressive type of bone cancer. The Club members decided to help by organising a cruise night at our clubrooms with all proceeds going to Renee.

The night started about 6.00pm and it wasn’t long before the car park was filled with Hot Rods, Customs and American Muscle Cars. There were many more vehicles parked in the street. All in all there were in excess of 100 cars.

The Flattrakkers provided the music for the evening and the kids were entertained with a giant jumping castle. The members were kept busy cooking the BBQ for the crowd of over 500 people. A monster raffle was held during the night with prizes donated by various members and other supporters of the evening.

It was a great night which was enjoyed by all and we thank everyone for their support. We were able to hand Renee an amount of $3000.00 which will assist her and her family during this difficult time.

A special thanks must go to Mick and Pam Cooley who co-ordinated the night as well as all the members who donated items for the raffle.

Here are a few photos taken during the night.
