Show your support with a £1 charity bauble

Help decorate the West Midlands Police Benevolent Fund’s Christmas tree with a festive message while raising vital funds for this worthy cause.

Each year the fund provides financial and practical support to WMP employees past and present.

Whether it’s helping our people through a bereavement, a loved one’s critical illness or another unexpected life event, the fund is always there for its members who pay a small monthly contribution for a lifetime of support.

The £1 baubles are a life changing alternative to traditional Christmas cards. And it’s West Midlands Police serving and retired officers as well as police staff who’ll directly benefit from your generosity.

Making a difference couldn’t be easier. Send your message via email to info@wmpben.co.uk and we’ll write your message on a bauble and place it on the Christmas tree.

To donate your £1 text BENFUND to 70201 which will add £1 to your next phone bill.
