Student Police Officers Get Their Walking Boots On For Charity

Student police officers on the IPLDP course based in Dyfed Powys Police HQ in Llangunnor will be undertaking a 20 mile walk from St Govans to Tenby on Friday 25th September 2009. The walk will be in aid of Wales Air Ambulance, which is an all Wales charity providing a vital service through emergency air cover for those who face life-threatening illness or injuries.

Wales Air Ambulance is funded by the people of Wales, relying on the public support to help keep them flying. Due to its widely scattered population and diverse landscape, many in Wales live in isolated locations far from an accident and emergency service. Also, the ever increasing problem of traffic congestion and collisions in more urban areas denotes delayed response times for land ambulances. For these reasons, there is a recognised need for three helicopters on active duty 365 days a year. Officers often face life or death situations and therefore have decided to raise funds for this vital service.

The students taking part in the walk will be PC Sarah Dalling, PC Tristan Evans, PC Gareth Tanswel, PC Nicola Bergonzi, PC Andrew Jones, PC Carl Pocock, PC Craig Watkins, PC Karen Johns, PC Jonathan Thomas, PC Lawrence Holcombe and PC Christopher Sheppard. Their tutors, PC Roger Webb and Dylan Thomas will also be taking part.

The group are hoping to raise as much money as possible therefore all donations and sponsorship would be very much appreciated. Anyone who wishes to sponsor them can contact PC Sarah Dalling and PC Karen Johns by phoning 101 and asking for the IPLDP department. Alternatively, and the easiest way is to log onto

  1. When traveling on a rough road or going for a long walk, gear yourself with a good pair of walking boots. It's designed for some great walking.
