The official Just Giving memorial fund for PC David Phillips has topped £78k.
Constable 6554 David Phillips was a Merseyside Police Officer who was married to Jen with two daughters – Abigail, aged seven and Sophie, aged three.
In the early hours of Monday 5th October Dave Phillips was tragically killed on duty after he was struck by a stolen vehicle in Wallasey on Merseyside.
He was simply doing his job.
For the second time in 10 months we have been touched and heartened by the messages of sympathy and support we have received from all over the United Kingdom and beyond.
Large numbers have contacted us wishing to make a donation to support Dave’s family so we have set up the Constable Dave Phillips Memorial Fund.
Dave’s family will decide how the fund will be spent and the fund will be independently audited by Kinsella Clarke Chartered Accountants.
Every penny donated via this Justgiving page will be transferred to Dave’s memorial fund.
The entire Police Family is in mourning at his death, and this memorial fund enables people to donate in Dave’s memory.
