A local charity is set to benefit from a donation from a group of recently sworn in police officers.
The 16 student officers, known as Cohort 5, pledged they would raise money for Redcar RNLI during their 19 week training period.
The officers took part in various fundraising activities including a charity boxing match, the Ali Brownlee 5k Riverside Run and weekly cake sales at Kirkleatham Police Office, raising a grand total of £1225.
“When we began our training back in March we decided we wanted to support a local charity and we agreed that the RNLI was an extremely deserving cause, and actually one which we frequently work alongside.
“It was a pleasure to present them with this cheque and we all look forward to continuing to work with our colleagues from this vital service.”
"We were delighted when we learned that Cohort 5 had chosen our lifeboat station for their charity fundraising efforts. It takes a lot of teamwork and organising to raise such a fantastic amount of money.
"We are a busy lifeboat station and, as a charity, every penny we spend
saving lives comes from donations."
