On June 30 police officers and VIPs gathered to support the Raunjak family and to thank the people instrumental in the 'Big Mac for Raunjak' fundraiser.
Mission Australia area manager Daniel Strickland and McDonalds Goulburn licensee Daimon Poole were honoured with a certificate of appreciation from the Hume Police District.
Jocelyn Raunjak was hospitalised in March with acute promyelocytic leukaemia and gave premature birth to her daughter Samantha via cesarean.
Husband, constable Andrew Raunjak from the Hume PD looked after the three children in a unit near the hospital.
The fundraiser was organised to help support the family through this difficult time.
Officer in charge of Goulburn Police Station Inspector Matthew Hinton said the event was an opportunity to come together, and socially distance as much as possible, to see Andrew and Jocelyn through the troubles they'd experienced and to recognise some of the people who had helped them along the way.
"For our community to come together and support [them] was overwhelming," he said.
"When we heard Jocelyn was not going really well everyone wanted to do something to show support... as things went from bad to worse Daniel Strickland and Daimon Poole leapt into action.
"From our calculations it was the biggest Big Mac fundraiser Goulburn had ever seen."
Mr Poole said it was fantastic to be involved in the fundraiser.
He said that none of us was as strong as all of us combined.
"It's great to band together as a community," Mr Poole said.
Mr Strickland thanked the police for their involvement.
"We really appreciate the work the police do," he said.
