Our mascot 'Bob' has become an integral part of the charity and is hugely popular, with literally hundreds already finding new homes and going on their own adventures. We have a dedicated 'Where's Bob' gallery on the website, so that his new owners can share their photographs of him on his travels.
At this year's BikeWise event on Sunday 24th July 2016, one of our supporters (and Roads Policing Unit officer) PC Mike 'Spike' Fisher decided to run a competition whereby anyone who bought a Bob mascot on the day was invited to send their photographs to us during the following week, and the owner of the best picture won a special day to meet some of our very own Police Interceptors / Police Dogs / have a ride in an marked Interceptor car / and spend some time finding out more about what we do and try some of our equipment.
Well ...... we were amazed at the response ! Hundreds of photographs were submitted and it was obvious that a lot of thought and effort had been applied. It was quickly apparent that to choose just one winner wouldn't have been fair, so we held another event for about 10 families as runners up.
Some photographs are shown below.
A great time was had by all and we couldn't believe that people had even travelled all the way from Surrey to join us for the day !!
Thank you once again to everyone that got involved, not only to all of you that took time to enter, but to all the officers, friends and family that made this a special day for the kids (and their adults !)
A final special mention must go to our overall winners - Noah, his brother Henry (pictured in hospital) and their parents Anna and James.
From all of us - we wish Henry a speedy recovery and good health for the future.
