The Chairman of Lincolnshire County Council, Coun Ray Wootten, has raised £1,200 for his chosen charity, the Police Roll of Honour Trust during his time in office.
The Trust was founded in 2000 after 20 years of research into the Roll of Honour, paying tribute to some 5,000 British police officers who have lost their lives in the execution of their duties. The Trust aims to remember those who died and support those left behind.
Coun Wootten, who is also a Grantham district councillor, said: “I wanted to support the Police Roll of Honour Trust as I believe it does vital work, offering support and assistance to bereaved families of police officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.”
The Chief Constable commented how much he had enjoyed working with Coun Wootten during his year in office.
Coun Wootten and his wife Coun Linda Wootten presented a cheque to Neil Rhodes, Chief Constable for Lincolnshire, today at the County Offices in Lincoln.
