TEENAGERS from across South Gloucestershire have raised £500 for Cancer Research UK after completing a sponsored 14-mile cycle ride and run.

The group of 11 volunteer police cadets took up the challenge on Sunday, June 29.

Joe Saint and Dan Nash ran from their base at Concorde House, Emersons Green - the South Gloucestershire policing area headquarters - to Bath, in two hours.

The other cadets, Fergus Higgens, Jemima Suffolk, Natalie Smith, Jaime-Rhian Hill, Gemma Pate, Georgia Fear, Alex Masey, George Hawkins and Matt Lewis, cycled the distance.

Cadet leader, Inspector Gerry Treacy, said: “Our cadets give up their time to support their communities and we’re really proud of all their efforts.

“This goes to show the range of activities our cadets get involved in over and above supporting local policing. “Whatever their plans for the future, being a cadet will help them learn team work and other key life skills.”

The Avon and Somerset Volunteer Police Cadet scheme is run by police officers, staff and volunteers in their own time. Visit www.avonandsomerset.police.uk to find out more.
