Police students raise £6,500 for Help for Heroes

Students at the Metropolitan Police Academy at Hendon have raised over £25,000 for various charities.

Each intake year raised money for its preferred good cause and students from year 2009/10 chose to donate the money they raised to Help for Heroes - and they raised a massive £6,500!

The police students had organised a number of fundraising activities. One event was a sponsored cycle ride from London to "Kabul" though the students were able to cover the 3,500 miles without actually leaving war-torn Croydon.

The cheque was handed over to Help for Heroes at the passing-out ceremony on March 5th. Sergeant Graham Watson said: "I would like to thank all the students for their support and co-operation in raising this amount of money for this extremely worthwhile cause. It is always an honour to show support for the men and women of our armed forces."

Well done, the Met Cadets!
