ALAN CHARLES LOOKING PRETTY IN PINK …..
Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles was in the pink raising funds to tackle breast cancer.
He said: “Around 55,000 people receive the devastating diagnosis every year, but with research and support of organisations like the Breast Cancer Campaign, more and more are surviving. But research isn’t free.
“So, along with my Deputy, Hardyal Dhindsa, I agreed to become a stall-keeper for a day, selling cakes, biscuits and all manner of delicacies made and donated by my team and other staff at Police HQ.”
The Commissioner and Mr Dhinsda were dressed in eye-watering style for ‘wear it pink’, helping to raise funds for Breast Cancer Campaign’s vital research. Attired in shocking (pink) outfits, they served hungry staff and visitors to Police HQ from a temporary store named Ye Olde OPCC Speciality Tuckshop.
The effort raised over £200.00
Mr Charles said afterwards: “That was really quite hard work, I think I’ll stick to the day job! But seriously, it was in a great cause and I would like to thank both my customers and those who provided my stock. Every bit helps.”
