From Whitehaven to Sunderland, the team of eight Roads Policing Officers from West Yorkshire Police will cycle circa 130 miles in just 3 days, raising money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
The Yorkshire Air Ambulance is a charity solely run by donations, relying on the generosity of the public to help keep both their air ambulances maintained and in the air, which costs £12,000 every day.
Richard Clarke, West Yorkshire Police, Roads Policing Officer said:
“We as a team, among other things attend, help and investigate all the serious and fatal road collisions in West Yorkshire. Our work often includes incidents where the Yorkshire Air Ambulance will be deployed to the scene. We can recall numerous incidents we have dealt with where the helicopter has attended, and lives have clearly been saved by air lifting patients to the hospitals in the golden hour of first aid.”
Compliance365 are sponsoring the West Yorkshire Police on their Coast2Coast cycle, raising money through dress down days in their office and purchasing limited addition Yorkshire Air Ambulance cycling jerseys for the team to wear during their cycle.
The Coast2Coast cycle will take place from the 2nd of October to the 4th of October, with the Road Policing Officers starting straight after their night shift!
