PCSO Daniel McHugh will be shaving his hair and PCSO Liam Hill will be shaving his beard to raise money for the charity that focuses on supporting children, young people and their families who have been the victims of serious crime.

PCSO Liam Hill, from the Community Cohesion team, said: “Christmas is such an important and happy holiday for most of us but unfortunately not for everyone.

“Our force works with Embrace Children Victims of Crime as a charity of choice to make sure that that children who have suffered abuse or have been affected by crime are looked after.

“PCSO Daniel McHugh and I decided to organise the charity shave event as well as take on the cycling challenge to fundraise for this important cause.

"We want to bring as many smiles as possible to the children and give them a chance to have the happy Christmas they deserve.

“We would like to invite all of our residents to join us on the day, no donation is too small and we appreciate your amazing support of our cause.”

At the same time, officers from the force's Community Cohesion team will be taking part in a static bike race against Luton Town Football Club Community Trust, The Mall and Anytime Fitness, to see who can cover the furthest distance, between 11am and 4pm.

The exercise bikes have been sponsored by Any Time Fitness.
