Margaret River police are calling on local businesses and anyone keen to donate prizes for the first of several charity quiz nights planned for the region.

The first quiz will be held at Stay Margaret River on May 23, with proceeds going to police charity Legacy.

Margaret River station boss Sergeant Luke Fowler, pictured above with Sen. Const. Garth Evans, said local cops wanted to keep holding the fundraisers, which would include charities based in the Capes.

“We want to raise money for Legacy, which is a cause really dear to us here,” Sgt Fowler said.

“We also want to get behind the town and support some of the charities here to better our community, which we really enjoy being in.”

Sgt Fowler said his officers loved living in the region and were proud to make a difference.

South West district Superintendent Geoff Stewart said Legacy looked after about 400 widows, six widowers and 58 children of fallen police officers.

Legacy paid for a children’s camp at Busselton during the school holidays last month.

“They provide all types of assistance and make sure they are there so the partners and/or families know they are not forgotten and remain part of the policy family,” Supt Stewart said.

“The support varies from financial assistance for basic living needs, educational support (and) personal and professional development.”

Police would be grateful to any businesses or tourism operators willing to donate extra prizes.

The May quiz is $40 a person for tables of six and bookings can be made through mrpolicequiz@gmail.com or via the station on 9757 2222.
