Two police officers have raised £572 for pancreatic cancer charity Operation Henry by completing their first ever triathlon. Andrew and Iain, known to friends, family and locally as Frankie and Ringo took on the triathlon in June and went on to raise a huge amount of money from friends and family. Frankie said “Thank you to everybody who supported us, we’re hoping to do it again next year and raise even more money!”
Frankie and Ringo decided to fundraise for Operation Henry when they heard about the charity through Trustee David Snelling and said “If we can raise at least £200 to help towards the charities worthwhile work we will be happy”. Well of course Frankie and Ringo smashed this target which they are very happy about.
Marina Leadbetter, Head of Fundraising for Operation Henry said “We are the only charity in the UK who gives this unique type of support to pancreatic cancer patients and their families, and our work is dependent on donations. We truly appreciate Frankie and Ringo for their support!”
Operation Henry is committed to delivering complimentary practical support and respite to people suffering from pancreatic cancer, so they do not have to cope alone.
