You may be aware of events in Manchester in September 2012 where two unarmed Police Officers where shot following a routine burglary call. My name is Bryn Hughes, the father of PC Nicola Hughes, one of the victims of the shooting.
The aims of our charity, the PC Nicola Hughes Memorial Fund, are to provide learning opportunities and pre employment skills in the form of support through grants or services to children (under 21) who have suffered a tragic loss of a close family member through a violent crime such as murder or manslaughter.
We have seen first hand the devastating effect this has on people and how we as adults cope in the aftermath, is different to how children cope.
We would like to help them to try and rebuild their lives and look towards the future. To be able to stand on their own feet by continuing with education, where financial situations may have changed, or start that course which will enable them to gain employment
We are asking for a donation, however small. We have provided a JustGiving link button below which will take you straight to our donations page.
