A police constable is set to take on a Lincoln 10K run later this week in memory of his colleague Paul Wills who sadly passed away earlier this year.
David Sharpe is aiming to raise £2,500 to help fund a memorial bench in honour of his friend when he runs through the city on Sunday, October 31.
It will be placed in the smoking area of Boston Police Station, in a nod to Paul – two trees, an English Oak and a Czech Lipa, will also be planted in his memory.
Any additional funds raised over the £2,500 target will be donated to the charity Gambling with Lives, which supports families affected by gambling.
PC David said: “My reason for doing this is to remember a friend and colleague.
“In doing so, I hope we can bring some positivity out of something so sombre, send a huge message of warmth from those that knew Paul to his loved ones and help those who are in need.”
“Paul was a popular and well-regarded member of the team. He was dedicated to serving his community and was a friend to many.
“His death was a tremendous loss to the force and we still miss him every day.”
