Fund-raising brother of police officer travelling 600 miles in his memory

7 June 2021

Members are being encouraged to support the brother of a police officer who died following a tragic car accident as he travels more than 600 miles in a carriage pulled by two horses to raise money for charity.

Jamie Alcock, whose brother was PC John Alcock, anticipates it will take him eight weeks to travel from his farm in Gloucestershire, to Morayshire, in North East Scotland, where his brother is buried.

Along with his dog, Boo Boo Beithe, Jamie is making the trip to raise money for Police Care UK, a national charity which supports both serving and retired officers with both their physical and mental health. 

His fund-raising efforts come after his brother died while travelling in a car to guard Prince Charles in 2003. John (54) was unconscious at the scene and died in 2017, having been in a coma for 14 years.

Jamie set off on Saturday and is aiming to travel 20 miles per day in a carriage being pulled by his two Shire horses, Millie and Willam, through the likes of Newent, Tewkesbury, Loughborough, Lincoln, York and Caledonia. 

Supporters are also being given the chance to travel with Jamie in the carriage, for an hour of his journey, in return for a £30 donation. There are limited spaces available and anyone who is interested should message his Facebook page.

You can donate to Jamie’s fund-raising page or follow his progress.
