At the Humber Night Challenge Awards Night, the High Sheriffs’ and Humber Police Tribune Trust presented HALO with a cheque for £800.
In thanking the HALO team for the help, support and advice provided for the Night Challenge over a period of months and on the night of the event, the Director of the Trust said –
“Not only did your members run the start, finish, checkpoints and map reading aspects of the event but you provided excellent training for the young people and through Ken Hutson for adult supervisors.
Your close involvement this year made the event much more professional and brought a new dimension to the competitors as they started and completed the course.
Not only have you assisted with Night Challenge now for two years but HALO’s work with young people at other events over the year reflects two of the Trust’s objectives, namely, promoting good citizenship and sport.”
Whilst the publicity that HALO gets from being one of the joint organizers of the Night Challenge is most welcome, the main reason we got involved was because we saw it as an opportunity to give something back to the community and to help some of those who have not had the same privileges that we have. We certainly did not get involved because we thought that we might get a grant - but it is very nice when our efforts are rewarded in such a tangible way.
What is the Trust?
The Trust is an endowment fund, registered with the Charities Commission. It was established by the High Sheriffs of Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire and the Chief Constable of Humberside Police to improve quality of life and create a positive image for our business and residential communities .
Who runs the Trust?
The Patrons and Trustees are local people who serve for a fixed term. Former, current, and future High Sheriffs and business leaders form the backbone of the Trustees. Through close contact with the police, donors and the community, they ensure that the Trust’s funds are used constructively to maximise the benefits to business and residents
