Kieran Diamond, Surrey Police Federation – JBB Chairman writes in Off Beat:
The past few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster for Surrey Police Federation. I can honestly say that in all my 20 yearsâ€™ service, Iâ€™ve never been so proud of our members.
Against all odds and pressures that you and your families face daily, youâ€™ve continuously delivered and demonstrated whatâ€™s great about being a member of the finest Police Service in the world.
The collective effort of everyone in supporting the Heather Cooper appeal fund has been truly amazing.
Although the money is still coming in, youâ€™ve raised Â£50,094 to date. This is inspirational and, on behalf of the Surrey Police Federation, I thank you all for your sterling efforts.
The â€˜Light the Lakesâ€™ charity walk was truly a remarkable pilgrimage and both Ian Davis and Peter Thomassen-Clarke (aka Big Pete) deserve special thanks for making the event a great success.
