New cops raise £1225 for Redcar RNLI 

Published

on

A local charity is set to benefit from a donation from a group of recently sworn in police officers.

The 16 student officers, known as Cohort 5, pledged they would raise money for Redcar RNLI during their 19 week training period and hand it over to the charity at their passing out service on 4th August at Police Headquarters.

The officers took part in various fundraising activities including a charity boxing match, the Ali Brownlee 5k Riverside Run and weekly cake sales at Kirkleatham Police Office, raising a grand total of £1225.

 Presenting Dave Cocks the Redcar Lifeboat Operations Manager and Howard Smith, Deputy Launching Authority of Redcar RNLI with a cheque, PC Leon Webster of Cohort 5 said:

“When we began our training back in March we decided we wanted to support a local charity and we agreed that the RNLI was an extremely deserving cause, and actually one which we frequently work alongside.

“It was a pleasure to present them with this cheque and we all look forward to continuing to work with our colleagues from this vital service.”

Dave Cocks, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Redcar RNLI said, ‘We were delighted when we learned that Cohort 5 had chosen our lifeboat station for their charity fundraising efforts. It takes a lot of teamwork and organising to raise such a fantastic amount of money.

‘We are a busy lifeboat station and, as a charity, every penny we spend saving lives comes from donations.

‘Not only has it been a superb fundraising effort, the visit by the trainees to the boathouse gave us an opportunity to show our future police officers the capabilities of the RNLI so that we can work closely together from here on.”

Deputy Chief Constable Simon Nickless, who led the passing out service earlier this month, added:

“I applaud the officers’ fundraising efforts; raising money for this essential local service was a wonderful gesture from them and demonstrates that they have clearly recognised early on the importance of supporting our partner agencies.”

North East hit by a blanket of snow many major routes covered

Published

on

Motorists are bring urged to take extra care across the North East as many major routes have been covered.

Heavy snow fall and strong winds have left the A1, A19, A66 & A1M covered in snow.

While many major routes in towns and cities have also been covered leaving many roads difficult to navigate.

Gritting across many areas has failed as the snow has created air pockets allowing the snow to rest on top.

Snow began falling at 11pm last night and is expected to continue until 9am this morning.

A number of schools, colleges and Universities are expected to announce they could be closed for the day. Make sure you check ahead before traveling.

Tweet your snow pictures @PoliceHour or add them to the comments section on Police Hour Facebook page.
