Story

Hi,

My name is Matthew. I am 16 years of age. I am a volunteer Police cadet in Hyndburn.

In October I am doing a skydive. The skydive is booked for Friday 26th October in Cornwall. Unfortunately due to weather this didn't take place. I am now booked in for the 5th/6th/7th April. Hopefully one of those days the weather will be good.

I am hoping for a career in the police and am currently on the public services course through my local college.

I contacted Lancashire Police with a view to getting sponsorship for the skydive for a charity they support.

The chief constable Andy Rhodes supported the North West Police Benevolent Fund and the UK police memorial fund. My intention should I raise enough money is to split between the 2 charities.

Please sponsor me to make a difference towards sick, injured, retired and their families at a time of need.

North west Police Benevolent Fund

Our Mission:

To relieve officers of Cheshire Constabulary, Greater Manchester Police, Merseyside Police, Lancashire Constabulary, Cumbria Constabulary and NCA, retired officers of those and previous police forces amalgamated within the constituent forces, together with their dependants, who are in a condition of need and hardship or distress.

UK Police Memorial fund:

The Police Memorial Trust is a charitable organisation founded in 1984 and based in London. The trust's objective is to erect memorials to British police officers killed in the line of duty, at or near the spot where they died, thereby acting as a permanent reminder to the public of the sacrifice they made.

    Update ............. Due to lousy weather I was unable to do the skydive last Friday and the winds were still high all weekend. It is now hopefully going to happen over the weekend of 5-7th April. Thank you to everyone who has so far supported me. Hopefully between now and then I can raise more money for the causes Thank you again Matthew

    Absolutely gutted. After 7 hours it was finally decided the jump couldn’t be done today. Winds were in excess of 30 mph. We need to leave for home Sunday. Weather not looking in our favour for rejump before having to return home. If this is the case it will be booked for next year. I will post a further update after the weekend. Gutted isnt the word 😟
