The Fund’s Trustees had a packed agenda to get through when they met on 4 May.
Approval was given to register nine new families and, in addition to the weekly assistance provided, grants totalling £14,718 were awarded to assist with higher education tuition fees; computers; school rail and bus fares; driving, swimming and music lessons plus school trips including destinations as far afield as South Africa and Vietnam. Two Board members’ retirements were marked: Mr Robin Smith from Sussex and Mr Nigel Faux from Thames Valley. Mr Paul Campbell from Surrey was welcomed as a Trustee, taking over from Mr Faux.
A trustee vacancy currently exits for an NPCC representative; Chief Constables from member forces will be advised.
