My story

[p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]In September 2012 PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone, two unarmed Police Officers where shot following a routine call to a burglary in Manchester. [/p][p]Following this tragic event the charity β€˜[b]PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund’ [/b]was set up. [/p][p]The aim of the charity is to provide learning opportunities and pre employment skills in the form of support through grants or services to children (under 21) who have suffered a tragic loss of a close family member through a violent crime such as murder or manslaughter.[/p][p]I have in my role as a DS on the Major Investigation Unit seen first hand the devastating effect this has on children. [/p][p]We would like to help them to try and rebuild their lives and look towards the future. To be able to stand on their own feet by continuing with education, where financial situations may have changed, or start that course which will enable them to gain employment. [/p][p]To help raise vital cash for this fund I have decided to help by running the New York marathon. Together with 46 other police officers from around the country. This is my first marathon and I hope you will dig deep to help me get through!![/p][p]My fundraising efforts will assist the University Placement Programme where we intend to fund at least four young people through University (this will form part of our overall 2019 fundraising).[/p][p]Imagine the difference we could make to the lives of these young people by giving them the chance to attend University after such tragedy.[/p][p]I will be running the New York Marathon in memory of PC Nicola Hughes and PC Fiona Bone who lost their lives protecting others that fateful day.[/p][p]Thank you for your support [/p][p][br][/p]
