A GROUP of daring children of fallen police officers are going sky high to raise money for Care Of Police Survivors by jumping out of a plane.

The 10 members of the group, who have all lost a father in the line of duty, will be taking part in a tandem skydive on 19 July – the Saturday of the annual Survivors’ Weekend.

The event is being organised by Vicky Moore (pictured).

There has been a very good response so far with more than £3,000 raised.

Vicky, daughter of PC Bryan Moore from Leicestershire Police, said: “Each of us is immensely proud of the everyday sacrifice our fathers made to protect our streets. In return we wanted to push ourselves to our own limits to show the true bravery our fathers died with.

“COPS was a charity set up by survivors in order to provide support for the families who have lost a family member in the line of duty.

“In the 10 years of COPS they have provided support for families across the nation enabling them to share stories, support one another through their grief and provide those who truly understand the extent of their loss.

“With COPS we – the kids – have made lifelong friends, achieved so much in or lives that we feel it is now that we gave back to the charity for all its done for us. COPS really does “rebuild shattered lives”.
