Police Office to run to New York

A Merseyside Police officer will be running across the Force and beyond to raise money for a charity set up by Bryn Hughes, the father of late GMP Officer, Nicola Hughes.

On 18 September 2012, unarmed Police Constables, Nicola Hughes, Bryn's daughter, and Fiona Bone, 2 Greater Manchester Police Officers, responded to a routine report of a domestic burglary. This was a hoax call and was made by a wanted killer, Dale Cregan. He lured the Officers to the address and killed them both in a gun and grenade attack. Bryn has set up a charity in his daughter's memory in the hope that something positive can come from their tragic deaths.

Bryn set up the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund, which aims to provide learning and skills training through grants or services, to children under 21 who have suffered the loss of a close family member due to a violent crime. Bryn approached all Police Forces, looking for a volunteer from each to run in the New York Marathon, on 6 November 2016, to raise funds and awareness.

Merseyside Police Constable Steve Twidale will be running four half marathons between Police Stations across Merseyside over the next 4 Fridays, before running the New York Marathon, on Sunday, 6 November 2016.

Steve said:- "Police Officers face risks on a daily basis and the deaths of Nicola and Fiona were heartfelt across all police staff. Being a Police Officer is a duty which we all undertake and accept the costs. The deaths of Nicola and Fiona, along with this week's anniversary of the death of Constable Dave Phillips, are reminder of that. As we age, we all suffer loss, but it is hard to imagine how a young person can cope with such an experience. Bryn's charity is a wonderful example of something positive coming from tragedy, and I am hoping to help raise as much money and awareness as possible over the next few weeks. Any support on the way will be such a boost to these tired legs! If you see me out on the streets, feel free to throw in some coins as it will make such a difference to the lives of young people."

Steve will begin his challenge, on Friday, 7 October 2016, at 11.30am, from Merseyside Police Headquarters at Canning Place, Liverpool, UK, before running a route which takes in Brunswick Dock, Allerton, Admiral Street, Smithdown Lane and Wavertree Road. Over the next 4 weeks, Steve will visit stations across:- Sefton, Kirkby, St Helens and Wirral, calling in to receive donations and well earned breaks. Anybody wishing to contribute to this cause can visit Steve's Just Giving Page or text:- 'TWID47 £5' to 70070.  If you are interested in fundraising for the charity please contact:- Info@PCNicolasFund.Co.UK.
