Knock Out Competition

Knock Out Comp

Dongara’s Emergency Services Knock Out Competition was held over the weekend!

The Emergency Services Team usually only meet in critical situations which is why the Knock Out Competition is held, giving the team a chance to get together and mingle in more relaxed conditions. The competition includes the team forming smaller groups of 6 and going head to head in an obstacle course.

Illegal Tender Rum Co donated a bottle as a prize toward the competition at the time of the Dongara Police Gold Day.

Here are some pictures of the mascot race!

Illegal Tender – helping kick breast cancer

Robyn Oldham has been working hard, not only battling cancer but also raising money to go towards further research for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

We donated a couple of bottles to Robyn Oldham’s recent Breast Cancer Breakfast.

It is our opportunity to contribute to a very worthy community initiative. Together we can fight Breast Cancer.

If you’re interested in one of the many ways you can help donate to Breast Cancer research, you can find any information you need to know here!
