PSA President: #Rambling4Remembrance

President of the Police Superintendents’ Association Paul Griffiths, is preparing for his latest annual charity challenge, this year in aid of Police Roll of Honour Trust (PRoHT).
On Sunday 11th July, Paul will begin walking the Pennine Way, covering a distance of 265 miles, starting from Kirk Yetholm. Paul hopes to complete the walk in 16 days over a period of annual leave.
His colleague, Dan Murphy, PSA National Secretary is a trustee of PRoHT, which is the official and only source of the United Kingdom's Police Roll of Honour. The Trust's work was recognised and endorsed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Grant of Royal Charter. There is no government record of the men and women who lose their lives whilst serving the nation in police forces throughout the UK. The Trust relies entirely on donations to continue research, supporting families, restoring memorials to the fallen and other work.
Last year, Paul supported the Police Arboretum Memorial Trust by cycling from John O’Groats to Lands End and to date has personally raised an incredible £21,000 for police charities.

Paul says, “As is always the case ahead of my annual challenge, I’m excited and anxious in equal measure!  There’s no doubt the walk will be tough but it it’s a stunning part of the world and I hope to enjoy it, whilst also taking time to reflect on the fallen officers and their families.

“It’s so important that we honour and remember those who never returned from work and who lost their lives on duty and I hope that this year’s challenge will provide a boost of funding to support the charity’s work.”
Paul is hoping to raise £4,000 and would appreciate any support https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/paul-griffiths71proht
