The gloves are on: Police officers urged to do battle in memory of fallen colleagues
9:00am Friday 16th August 2013 in News
POLICE officers in St Helens are being asked to pull on their boxing gloves for the ‘Battle of the Forces’, to raise money for a memorial fund named after a fallen colleague.
PCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone were murdered by Dale Cregan as they attended an apparent routine call out in September 2012.
The PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund helps those who have been the victim of crime, the North West Benevolent Fund and Care of Police Survivors.
TMAS Health and Fitness, which has a martial arts gym in Moss Bank, is staging the event in Liverpool in October.
Officers from Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire have already signed up. Organisers say that no experience is necessary as there will be boxing camps set up in each area with a boxing coach.
Full protection equipment will be worn.
If you’re up for the challenge contact Bern Giam on 0151 524 9168 or 07919 577541.
