At the end of last week I met up with two Sutton Coldfield residents, Glenn Billington and Pete Knight (both retired police officers) and serving Police Constable Dan Hitchmough. They told me of an event being arranged by PC Hitchmough which was in memory of a fallen police officer and all funds raised going to a children’s charity.
To mark the twentieth anniversary of Rob’s death the event will be held on Sunday 17th July 2022. The ‘The Rob Ling Memorial trophy’ will be contested by Leicestershire and Notts police at Ilkeston Football ground league. All proceeds are going to Young Live V Cancer and is in memory of eight year old Daniel Rigley (PC Dan Hitchmough’s cousin) who sadly lost his life to leukaemia.
The league and the final is sponsored by Glenn’s company, Jigsaw Infrared. They have donated a prize, a large glass heater which can be designed by the winner and worth over £1,000. The winner will be selected at random when they donate to the Just Giving page in this link https://www.justgiving.com/Combined-Midland-Police-League
Please donate to this amazing and well deserved charity, every penny counts
