Top cop to dangle from suspension bridge to raise £1,000 for charity
ONE of Dorset’s top cops is set to dangle from a suspension bridge – all in the name of charity.
Dorset Police Deputy Chief Constable James Vaughan is taking part in a charity abseil to help raise £1,000 for Refuge, which will go towards its £10,000 goal.
The officer has confirmed that he will be participating in the charity abseil for the UK charity Refuge as part of #TeamRappel.
Refuge is a national charity for women and children who experience domestic violence, providing emergency accommodation and emotional and practical support.
The charity has set an aim of raising £10,000 to help support children who have escaped from traumatic home environments and provide rehabilitation for victims of extreme violence.
The officer will be abseiling down Avon Gorge in Somerset on Sunday, September 22, with nine other team members as part of #TeamRappel to raise £1,000 towards the grand total.
He said: “I am really excited to be taking part in this challenge while supporting this very worthwhile cause.
“The charity carries out amazing work and makes a tremendous difference to the lives of victims and children affected by domestic violence.
“The abseil itself is fairly daunting and I would like to thank everyone for helping us.”
