Cop a load of this! Officers raise £600 for hospice
Police have handed £600 to a hospice which cares for ill children and young people.

Pc Nita Ravat raised £433 by selling samosas at the station over the past year, while Hayley Peacher ran the Leicester half-marathon, generating £167 in sponsorship.
Jennifer Leach, of Rainbows, visited the station, in Belgrave Gate, to collect the donation.

She said: "I am very happy to receive this cheque. It all helps keep our doors open.
"We need to raise £4.2 million every year to keep the hospice open. We look after children from birth up to 30 years of age and care for the whole family.
"It's nice for families as they can get some respite care and talk to our staff. I can't thank the officers and staff enough."
Pc Ravat said "I just wanted to do something for charity and this is a great one to support."
Hayley said: "It was my first marathon and I now run 10k every morning at 5am."
