Melbourne East Police Station staff and their families held a Red Nose Day fundraiser to raise money for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Senior Sergeant Adam Tanner said the station held a fundraiser for a good cause every year. This year they raised $500 for Red Nose Day, which fell on June 30.
The police officers had previously raised money for Monash Children’s Hospital and the Australian Cancer Council.
The Red Nose funds were raised through a barbecue, face paintings and guessing the number of lollies in a jar.
“We want to acknowledge the good work that these charities are doing and help the community,” Snr Sgt Tanner said.
“It’s also a great opportunity for the staff across the city police station to get together and show families their workplace,” he said.
