Last updated at 09:25, Tuesday, 22 April 2014
A TEAM of Cumbria Police officers based in Windermere and Kendal will cycle to and from two of the world’s most famous towers to show their support to local charities.
Nine South Lakes police officers and a Windermere businessman will cycle from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower, a distance of almost 600 miles, between June 23 and June 28.
The team is aiming to raise £10,000 for the North West Air Ambulance Service and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary Neonatal Unit.
The group’s progress can be followed on Facebook at: South Lakes Police Tower to Tower 2014.
The team is made up of six serving and three recently retired police officers: Paul Mellard, Mark Jacobs, Christine Nelson, Bill Nolan, Jonathan Sizer, Paul Latham, John Orr, Dave Banks, Ian Carruthers, and Windermere businessman Paul Liddell.
Donations to the charities can be made by clicking the links at the team’s Justgiving page: www.justgiving.com/teams/SLPT2T2014
