You are joining us Live from Birmingham from the Steelhouse Lane Lockup a victorian mini-prison.

Where members of the public and police officers are taking part in the second annual event at the Steelhouse Lane lockup to raise thousands of pounds for the Care of Police Survivors (COPS) a charity which is dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives on duty rebuild their lives.

Half of the money raised will also be going to the West Midlands Police Museum which will use the funds to relocate the lockup and give advice to children on knife crime, drugs, online safety and child sexual exploitation.

Last year’s event raised a whopping £6,059 in total and it is hoped that tonight’s event can raise even more. If you can help please donate.

One of those police officers who is spending the night in prison is Police Constable Chris Green who has traveled from the northeast to spend the night raising thousands for charity.

Who is behind the event?

Julia Berry AKA Jules has relentlessly arranged tonight’s event for the past two years. We are all awaiting the announcement of a third event.

She is an incredible lady who gives and does a lot for a charity she is very active on Twitter but uses her following to raise awareness of her charity work.

Jules also happens to be the mummy bear behind PC Eddie Walker who also raises awareness for the Care of Police Survivors charity.

Police Hour has already made a significant donation towards the event and it’s hoped you can support the Care of Police Survivors and fallen officers too.

Tonight to ensure as much money as possible and awareness of the event is raised we’ll be live-tweeting the event, after all, it’s all about having fun and raising thousands of pounds for the Care of Police Survivors.
