This week’s hero is Darren Sadler

We’ve rewarded Darren with a Bathurst Drive!

Wow, we had a ton of amazing nominations sharing stories of how someone they know has done an awesome job on the frontlines and deserves a Valvoline “Never Idle” V8 drive at Bathurst. The winner is Darren Sadler and nominated by Sarah:

Darren Sadler is a Sergeant in the Police Force. He works in a remote country town overseeing other small stations. During this covid-19 he has been working very hard helping others with mental health issues, family violence issues plus much more each day. He is going on call straight after work and going straight back to work the next morning. He has a 14 year old son that lives interstate and has not been able to see him because of the travel restrictions. Further more his current wife and 2 children (2&4) are staying in a separate residence due to the covid-19 risk associated with his work and hasn’t physically been with them in a long time. I believe he would be a worthy winner and would put a smile on his face.
