Weʼve raised £1,437 to Raise funds for a friend and colleague Dave Fairhurst recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease
- Funded on Saturday, 13th October 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On Monday 9th July 2018 officers from Team 4 Immediate response at Blackburn Police will be attempting to cycle the 127 mile LEEDS / LIVERPOOL canal in 24 hours. We completed the same ride in November 2016 however this was over a two day period.
We will be completing the ride in aid of a friend and colleague Dave Fairhurst who is a serving police officer in the firearms department. It was with great sadness to us all to hear that Dave was recently diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
Dave is married to Lynsey who is also a police officer and they have two beautiful girls Matilda and Anabelle. As you can imagine Dave will need a massive amount of help in terms funding for equipment to assist him in trying to live his life to the full. The funds raised from our event will go directly to Dave's family to put towards this vital equipment.
As a group we have raised over £5000 for charity in 2 years. It means a lot to us this time to raise money for one of our own who is closely connected to many us .As police officers both Lynsey and Dave have spent their careers helping people and putting themselves out for others. It would mean a lot to us to give something back and ensure that Dave gets the vital help that he needs. Thankyou for giving.
