HEROES HELPING HEROES

Police in Oldham have raised £3,681 for men and women injured while serving with the armed forces by giving shoppers a little extra help at the checkout. Officers and Police Community Support Officers took part in a bag-packing event on Thursday 3 December to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity.

PC Ian McDonald said: -Not only have we raised a lot of money for this worthy cause, but the event also provided us with the chance to talk to people in an informal environment who might not otherwise speak to an officer.

Phil Caloe, County Coordinator, Royal British Legion, said: -We want to thank all the officers and of course the public who helped raise this money. We are always very grateful to everyone who takes the time to contribute to this worthy cause.

The fund-raiser not only supports a good cause but it is just one of the many ways that the Oldham Division is working with local communities and striving to deliver the Policing Pledge.

-We are keen to hear from the residents to ensure our service is focussed on the needs of local communities, addressing the issues that matter most to people in Oldham, adds PC McDonald.

Help For Heroes is a registered charity and was launched in 2007 to raise funds for the treatment and rehabilitation of injured service men and women.
