Bryn Hughes, North Pole Marathon
In April 2014 I completed the North Pole Marathon in memory of my daughter, PC Nicola Hughes, who lost her life alongside her colleague in September 2012 in Manchester.
We have now created a lasting legacy in Nicola’s name to help children who have lost a parent through a criminal act.
The aims of our charity, the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund, are to provide learning opportunities and pre employment skills in the form of support through grants or services to children (under 21) who have suffered a tragic loss of a close family member through a violent crime such as murder or manslaughter.
We have seen first hand the devastating effect this has on people and how we as adults cope in the aftermath, is different to how children cope.
We would like to help them to try and rebuild their lives and look towards the future. To be able to stand on their own feet by continuing with education, where financial situations may have changed, or start that course which will enable them to gain employment
Bryn is asking for a donation, however small. We have provided a JustGiving link button below which will take you straight to the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund donations page.
