Officers take part in Epping Race for Life to raise money for great cause
Six of our officers from the Brentwood and Epping Community Policing Team got their running shoes on earlier this week for a great cause.
The officers took to the starting line at North Weald Airfield on Wednesday for the annual Epping Race for Life.
Pink flowers and sweatbands were order of the day as officers jogged and ran their way around the 5K and 10K course to support loved ones battling the disease.
They were joined by friends and colleagues including Sp Sgt East, Laura Chalcraft from Active Citizens and the Epping Volunteer Police Cadets who turned out to support the team.
So far the officers have raised over £865 for Cancer Research, including £665 from their online donations page.
Sgt Lisa Cooke said: “Everyone knows someone affected by cancer and we are proud to stand together and raise money to help fight the disease. We had a fantastic evening supporting a really worthwhile cause. I’d like to thank everyone who got involved and donated or turned out to support us.”
Anyone who would like to sponsor our officers can do so by visiting their donations page.
