29 September 2015 marks Blue Ribbon day in Victoria, a public day of remembrance for police officers who were killed in the line of duty while serving the community.
BankVic are proud to support this important public event as a silver partner.
Blue Ribbon Day raises much needed funds to assist the Blue Ribbon Foundation to continue its work building emergency medical facilities in hospitals across Victoria named in memory of the fallen officers. Coinciding with the National Police Remembrance Day, the day helps to raise awareness and perpetuate the memory of police members killed in the line of duty.
A number of external promotions will help to raise awareness of this event including internal and external train advertising on two Melbourne suburban trains, press advertisements and outdoor billboards.
This year’s Blue Ribbon Day will see the naming of a bridge on the Western Highway in memory of Senior Constable Tim Lewczuk as well as Police Remembrance services will be held around Melbourne and Regional Victoria.
