Chief Constable Stuart Hyde and other officers from Cumbria Constabulary are to partake in an event to support the family of a police officer from Surrey who was tragically killed. Detective Constable Heather Cooper, aged 33, recently died in tragic circumstances and one of her colleagues has organised a sponsored walking event to do something positive in Heather’s memory and provide some financial support to her two children.
Sergeant Ian Davis, who is the Chairman of the Surrey Police Federation and the Sergeants Branch Board, has organised the event which will take place on Saturday 28th April 2012 in the Lake District. The challenge is to light a lamp in Heather’s memory on the summit of every one of the 214 Wainwright peak just before sunrise at first light.
Chief Constable Stuart Hyde said: “I am proud to be involved in this event and I will be walking Harter Fell by Mardale. The whole challenge is a massive undertaking and has received a lot of support. It is a unique way to remember the memory of Heather and will hopefully provide some financial support for her children.”
