Police donation boost for Save The Children 17 December 2008

Police charity uniform recyclingTHE Isle of Man Constabulary has provided a welcome boost to a children’s charity by donating surplus items of old uniform.

Clothing that previously would have been earmarked for disposal has instead been presented to a local branch of Save The Children. Chief Constable Mike Langdon called in at the charity’s shop on Windsor Road in Douglas to meet the volunteers and hand over a boxful of surplus trousers.

The old uniform will be sold or recycled to generate additional funds for Save The Children which helps to improve the lives of youngsters throughout the world.

CC Langdon said:

‘Supporting children and young people has always been one of the Isle of Man Constabulary’s main priorities. The local volunteers at Save The Children do a tremendous job and it’s pleasing to be able to make a small contribution to their efforts. The police support community recycling initiatives wherever possible and the fact that our old uniform will raise funds for such a worthy cause is an added bonus.’

The donation was organised by Lynn Le Guillou, secretary to the senior command team at police headquarters and a STC volunteer. Lynn was joined for the presentation by charity colleagues Doris Cowley, Karin Baker and Jill Teggins. The shop on Windsor Road is particularly busy at this time of year and welcomes cash donations or good quality items for sale to the Manx public.
