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.
Hundreds of attendees including South Holland MP John Hayes, former members of the regiment and family members joined the troops to show their support.
PCSO Clarke said: “It went very well, we raised an amazing amount. It shows what strong support we have; it’s a strong charity.”
