Rosie's Helping Hands helps to improve the care and quality of young lives in the Aldridge area funding good causes working with children and young people up to the age of 25.
The charity was set up by Karen and Sean Ross after their 16-year-old daughter Rosie lost her life in May 2001. Each year they raise around £10,000 to help local charities through a community day and sponsored walk.
The sponsorship initiative is part of Police Mutual's wider three-month programme of support for West Midlands Police officers and staff, who were invited to bid for a share of sponsorship funding to benefit local community projects close to their hearts.
Karen Ross said: "We are delighted to receive £500 from Police Mutual, which has enabled us to purchase equipment that we would not otherwise have been able to afford. The tents are super strong, designed for outdoor events so they can withstand most of what the British weather throws at us! We've also been able to loan the tents out to schools and other voluntary groups for them to use too. Thank you so much to Police Mutual for their donation."
Our head of Membership, Eve Clowes, added: "Rosie's Helping Hands is making a real difference in the lives of young people in the local area and we were inspired by the work Karen and Sean were doing. We were happy to support them with a donation of £500."comments powered by Disqus
