On Bank Holiday Monday, Burnden members completed a virtual race running 7.605k in memory of PC Andrew Harper 7605 who tragically lost his life while on duty in Berkshire.

The team ran from Walker Fold up to Winter Hill Mast before returning back to Walker Fold, completing their 7.605k.

The event, organised by Trail Snails Bingley, had runners and walkers all over the country talking part in the virtual event raising money for the charity Care of Police Survivors, which is a charity that supports families of police officers and staff who have lost their lives on duty.
