MEMBERS of the Australian Bravery Association (ABA) put their foot down yesterday and said enough is enough, taking to Deakin Avenue to put a stop to violence against emergency service workers and hospital staff.

Led by John Burfitt, the group braved the rain to walk the 3.5 kilometres from Mildura Central to Langtree Mall, raising money for the association along the way.

“You hear about so much violence against emergency service workers and hospital staff and enough is enough, it is time it stops,” Mr Burfitt said.
