About the Share An Hour campaign
On 12 August 1966 three police officers were murdered on duty in London. This brutal crime shocked the nation and prompted the foundation of the Police Dependants’ Trust; a fund to support seriously injured officers and the families of officers killed on duty.
This August, fifty years on from those events, we’re asking you to Share An Hour.
By donating an hour’s pay you will not only mark the sacrifice made bySergeant Christopher Head and Constables David Wombwell and Geoffrey Fox, but also raise money to support colleagues who find themselves in life-changing situations.
How to Share An Hour
Firstly, work out what an hour’s pay looks like for you. As a rough guide:
£20,000 p/a = £9.62 per hour
£30,000 p/a = £14.42 per hour
£40,000 p/a = £19.23 per hour
£60,000 p/a = £28.85 per hour
Alternatively you can use this handy calculator or give another amount of your choosing.
Once you have decided how much you would like to give, visit our special #ShareAnHour page on Just Giving to make your donation in a few simple clicks. If applicable, Gift Aid will be added to your donation which will make your gift go even further.
Your donations will help to fund the full range of our work. From grants which enable disabled officers to remain in independent in their own home, to help for families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty, to improving support for serving officers suffering from mental health issues, you can be sure your gift will make a difference to your colleagues.
