aql help to Raise £20,000 for Help For Heroes
aql recently sponsored the "Commissioners Cup", an event for the metropolitan Police that raised £20,000 for Help For Heroes.
The event was a rugby match between TSG Rhinos and Trojans, which was a bit of a whitewash with the Rhinos taking home a 38-0 victory. In
the ladies match the MPS Ladies Rugby Team drew 10-10 with Hampstead Ladies (which was very hard fought match).
As well as the rugby, there were other events to entertain the spectators such as a Lancaster Bomber performing a stunning fly past to pay
tribute to injured soldiers. There were also demonstrations from The Firearms Unit, Mounted Section and The Dog Unit among others. Making
the occasion a treat for everybody involved.
A cheque for £14,00 was also presented by Assistant Commissioner, John Yates at the MPS Canteens with the rest of the contributions still to be collected.
Event Organiser, DS Ian Vickers said "It was a great day out. We'd like to thank everyone who gave up their precious time and money for Help
For Heroes. The final total will be somewhere in the region of £20,000, which is great. The Met is proud to help our injured soldiers in any
way we can" He continued "Special thanks go to the event sponsors ...aql who made it possible"
