Police employees ‘tri’ to raise money for Pudsey


Staffordshire Police employees who took part in fundraising events for
Children in Need have been celebrating their success.

Fire and police staff with cheque, CC, Kash, Pudsey and WelephantAs happened last year, police officers and staff took part in an indoor
triathlon competition. Teams of three, dressed as superheroes, completed a 15 minute challenge of cycling, rowing and running, but with an added event this year of “how many sit ups in one minute.”

Sales of cakes and various other events helped swell the coffers to a total
of £3028.28. A superhero-sized cheque for that amount was presented to
Pudsey by Chief Constable, Jane Sawyers who, along with Deputy Chief
Constable Nick Baker and Assistant Chief Constable, Jon Drake also took
part in the triathlon, at Staffordshire Police HQ.

Said Mrs Sawyers: “Children in Need has been part of the force’s calendar
for the past few years. I’m proud of the way officers and staff are
prepared to use their own time to take part in fundraising challenges like
this. It’s a really worthwhile cause and I’m pleased we managed to make so much money.”
