Get fit and do good

It's at this point in January that many of us abandon our plans to get fit or shift a few pounds. The cold weather and dark nights do nothing to encourage us.

If you need a little extra motivation, how about signing up for an event that raises money to support injured colleagues, or bereaved young people?

The Paris Marathon

If running is your thing, you could take part in the marathon on 8 April and raise funds for the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund.

Nicola was one of two GMP officers killed as they responded to reports of a burglary in September 2012.

The charity provides learning opportunities and pre-employment skills, through grants or services, to children who have suffered the loss of a close family member through a violent crime such as murder or manslaughter. It was established by Nicola's father, Bryn Hughes, who spoke passionately about its work at our conference last year.

Runners are asked to raise £500, which will include the entry fee and guarantee a place in the marathon.

Contact Bryn Hughes on 0330 043 4547 for more information.

The Back on the Beat Cycle Sportive

For cyclists, the Police Treatment Centre's Cycle Sportive returns for a second year on Sunday 20 May 2018.

The event offers two routes; a 50km intermediate and a more challenging 99.9km route (classified GRADE 3 by the British Cycling Sportive grading system). Both start and finish at St Andrews, the Police Treatment Centre in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Riders will raise money to support the work of the charity, which provides physical and psychological support for police officers.

Entry fees for the ride are £25 (99.9km route) or £20 (50km route). Fundraising entry costs £15 with a commitment to raise a minimum of £100.
