Police cadets have raised a staggering £2,000 for charity.
The Hyndburn and Ribble Valley Police Cadets helped out in the local community by bag packing at Sainsburys in Clitheroe where they raised over £600, collected £400 at a fundraising event at Oswaldtwistle Mill and took part in a sponsored walk where they raised more than £1000.
In addition, they’ve been building a sensory path for All Saints School in Clayton le Moors and tree planting at St Christopher’s CE High School in Accrington.
The Senior Cadets also helped out at the recent Accrington Christmas Lights Switch on, where they buddied up with several special constables and patrolled the town centre.
Sgt Kathryn McIntyre who co-ordinates the cadet scheme in Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley said: “This is all in addition to their weekly club sessions at Accrington & Rossendale College where they have been learning about Trading Standards, ARU, practising on the Police Radios and fitness tests.
The cadets will also be out in Great Harwood on December 14 with the Neighbourhood Police Teams, handing out jingle bells and crime prevention advice.
