I am Anna Palfrey, a detective in Thames Valley Police.

In September 2018 my partner PC Tom Dorman was hit by a car whilst on duty and, as a result of his injury, lost his leg below the knee.

Since Tom’s discharge, Police Care UK have been a great help to Tom through funding a new wheelchair and a handbike, both of which are fit for his needs.

I am Anna Palfrey, a detective in Thames Valley Police. In September 2018 my partner Tom Dorman was hit by a car whilst on duty and, as a result of his injury, lost his leg below the knee.

Since Tom’s discharge, Police Care UK have been a great help to Tom through funding a new wheelchair and a handbike, both of which are fit for his needs.

I wanted to do something myself to raise funds and make people aware how Police Care UK can help those in need. Many people simply do not know that they exist.

I decided to take on the almighty Wolf Runs. These are a series of runs interspersed with obstacles, rivers and differing terrain. Previously I’d completed 1 wolf run which was in the summer of 2018, a hard task but one I thoroughly enjoyed.  There are four wolf runs across the year – each in a different season; spring, summer, autumn and winter. I plan to complete all 4 runs across the year.

Having previously struggled with knee pain when running, my training focused on cardio fitness and weight training to get my strength up.

Admittedly I was extremely apprehensive for the first run due to the very cold temperatures, and the thought of submerging myself in freezing water was not a good one.

The run started well, however after the first 3km I experienced severe pain in my knee which meant I had to walk the remainder. This made the cold temperatures even harder. But I soon realised that the brief pain I was experiencing was nothing in comparison to what some of the beneficiaries of this amazing charity have been and continue to go through.

I finished the run in 2hours 10minutes and was very happy to finally finish and get warm and dry!

I am looking forward to the next run where I hope my knee is better and the weather is warmer!

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Police Care UK to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Police Care UK we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Police Care UK to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Police Care UK will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Police Care UK receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
