In a bid to help raise money for Police Legacy the Blue Knight Australia Motorcycle Club are asking South West businesses for donations, which they will match dollar for dollar.
Blue Knights Australia Chapter 4 vice president Gary Timms said they had put plans in motion at their March meeting.
“We will match donations by any other company or organisation dollar for dollar, up to $1,000, hopefully we’ll double it or even more by way of donations,” he said.
Blue Knights Australia Chapter 4 treasurer Alan Snow said Police Legacy was always there for the families of injured and fallen officers.
“Police don’t have workers compensation, if they are injured that’s it, then they rely on Police Legacy,” he said.
“We’re saying to the business leaders think of the people who are out there protecting you on a daily basis.
“If they get injured they don’t have the luxury of workers compensation – it’s about supporting the people who support us and keep us safe every day.”
Blue Knights Australia aims to promote safe motorcycle riding and assist charities in the community.
