Wisbech PCSO hands �2,700 to Royal Anglian Regiment on behalf of Help for Heroes
A CHEQUE for �2,700 was presented by PCSO Sue Clarke to the Royal Anglian Regiment on behalf of Help for Heroes.
The money was raised by a sponsored swim organised by PCSO Clarke at the Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech for the charity, which aims to help those wounded in Britain’s current conflicts.
She said: “We often have police coming in [the army] from the force and people feel strongly about what’s going on at the moment.
Swimming is the best sport I’m good at, so I decided to help raise money for Help for Heroes.”
The presentation ceremony took place on Saturday at the Anglia Motel, Spalding.
