Share An Hour this August

On 12 August 1966 three police officers were murdered on duty in London. This brutal crime shocked the nation and prompted the foundation of fund to support seriously injured officers and the families of officers killed on duty: the Police Dependants’ Trust.

This August, 50 years on from those events, we’re asking you to…

Share An Hour

We’re asking you to donate one hour’s pay to mark the sacrifice made by Sergeant Christopher Head and Constables David Wombwell and Geoffrey Fox, and to raise money to support colleagues who find themselves in life-changing situations.

How to Share An Hour

Firstly, work out what one 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 donate a sum of your choice.

Once you have decided how much you would like to give, visit our special Share An Hour 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 support for families who have lost a loved one in the line of duty, to treatment for serving officers suffering from mental health issues, to you can be sure your gift will make a difference to your colleagues.
