SENIOR CONSTABLE DAVID RIXON FUNDRAISER
March 3, 2012
MONSTER FUNDRAISING RAFFLE – 100% OF THE PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE FAMILY OF SENIOR CONSTABLE DAVE RIXON
In an effort to raise some funds for the family of David, Blue Liners will be holding a gigantic raffle which is open to anyone in the community to purchase tickets at $10 each.
Tickets are avaialble from this site as well as from Members and a number of outlets that will be announced. The raffle will be drawn on the 15th September2012 on the Wall to Wall Ride and will be on sale until that date. It is not necessary to attend the Wall to Wall ride to win a prize in the fundraiser.
Lists of prizes will be available from later this week, as at that time the list of prizes will not be complete but I can assure everyone, there will be lots of brilliant prizes to be won.
This raffle will be in addition to our continuing support of Police Legacy and is run as a separate fundraising venture.
REST IN PEACE – SENIOR CONSTABLE DAVID RIXON
TODAY WE HAVE LOST ANOTHER POLICE HERO
It is a very sad day in the life of the NSW Police Force and for the New South Wales community as well. We have once again, lost one of the rarest breed of our community, one who stands up against crime and criminals and puts themself in the line of fire……THE THIN BLUE LINE…
David Rixon is such a person.
In circumstances which will become public in due course, the life of a 40 year old man, a father, husband and friend who, since 1990 has served the community of NSW and Tamworth, this morning paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty in Tamworth.
David was shot a number of times and tragically lost his life as a result.
David rode with our New England mob and was a regular at their coffee meetings, and rides and he will be missed.
To the family of David, our deepest and sincere condolences go out to you, to his many friends from the Police family as well as those in the Blue Liners, our thoughts are with you and if there is anything that can be done, we are only a phone call away.
I ask that every Blue Liner member as well as anyone else reading this post, spare a moment of thought for David and his family on this tragic day.
