NSW Police at Triple Zero Cricket Challenge

Wingecarribee Shire Council is proud to support the annual Triple Zero Cricket Challenge at Bradman Oval on Sunday 21 October.

Council’s Local Emergency Management Officer, Amanda Lawrence, described the challenge as a continuous cricket match between local triple zero emergency service agencies.

“The day provides a unique opportunity for families to meet with their local emergency service workers in a fun and relaxed environment,” she said.

“It’s a chance to come together and have an enjoyable day with the community.”

Keen cricketers from the NSW Police Force, NSW Fire and Rescue, NSW Rural Fire Service and NSW State Emergency Service will battle it out in the name of charity.

“This year we’re delighted to support the Southern Highlands Suicide Prevention Program,” said Ms Lawrence. “The program relies upon grants, donations and volunteer assistance to raise awareness of suicide prevention in our community.”

A line-up of emergency service vehicles and equipment will be on display for families and children to enjoy, along with kids activities and information on careers and volunteering.

“With the NSW Rural Fire Service taking home the Perpetual Shield last year, the pressure is on to see which team will prevail,” joked Ms Lawrence.

The Triple Zero Cricket Challenge is free to attend and supported by Council and the Bradman Foundation.

The challenge will take place at Bradman Oval in Bowral between 10am and 4pm on Sunday 21 October 2018.
