THE Volunteer Police Cadets of West Kent stepped up to the challenge of raising money for this year’s Sport Relief.
The cadets participated in a number of activities at the East Malling Centre on March 18, including taking part in a Billion Steps Challenge.
Sport Relief set this collective task, coordinated across the country, to achieve more than a billion steps a day every day from March 17 to 23.
Police Constable Julie Michel said: “The enthusiasm and conduct of these young volunteers continues to be a real credit to every one of them.
“They have all contributed in their own way to a very worthy cause, which helps raise money for disadvantaged people across the world.”
The cadets were also on hand to help cyclists protect their bikes from theft by offering visitors a free security marking service.
The Volunteer Police Cadets scheme began in 2016 and is a uniformed organisation supported by Kent Police for young people aged 13 to 17.
The cadets meet once a week for two to three hours in term time, and also give up three hours each month to help a community-based project.
