The residents of the Warrina Nursing Home were treated to an early Easter surprise Tuesday.
One of the Cassowary Coast Patrol Group Volunteers in Policing, Lesley Sapuppo, accompanied Innisfail police officers as they visited the residents during their annual Easter bonnet parade providing them with a little chocolate delight and picking the winners for the best bonnet.
This is the third year they have attended the facility, the idea was born after Innisfail lifetime local and Volunteer in Policing, Lesley Sapuppo approached the District Crime Prevention Coordinator and raised the idea of encouraging good community spirit towards the police service.
Leslie felt it was a good way to show the public that members of the police service are human and care for all aspects of the local community.
Leslie and her husband Robert own and run a successful engineering company, Daradgee Welding Works and Leslie very generously offered to supply the Easter surprises for the day.
Not only did the day allow the community to see members of the police service in a different light but also it made the officers appreciate just how much a little kindness can change a person’s day.
