The Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade is the recipient of last year’s collection money from the Battle of the Bridge rugby match, getting a $1,000 boost to its coffers.
Co-founders of the annual event, Mike Cochrane (left) and Mark Nogaj (right), presented a cheque to chief fire officer Don Gerrand (centre) last week.
Don said the money would help to pay for the brigade’s set of state-of-the-art new Hella Uni Max lights, which he said are proving to be a valuable addition to the fire truck.
Mike paid tribute to Dave Peters and Frank Callaghan for their hard work last year, also thanking sponsors and supporters for making it a great day.
He also took the opportunity to announce that this year’s Battle of the Bridge will be held on Saturday, August 18, at the Leamington Sports Club.
