Student police officers have taken part in a virtual bike ride to raise money for a Basildon dementia charity.
The team of trainee cops, known as Intake H2, cycled 385 miles on exercise bikes – the equivalent of cycling the whole Essex coastline – to raise money for the Forget Me Not Memory Café.
The charity lays on activities for dementia sufferers and offers support, advice and respite to their carers.
It holds regular events in Basildon and Billericay.
The event, held in Springfield, was one of several planned by the officers, with a goal of collecting £2,000 for the charity.
They have also opened a tuck shop, selling cakes and snacks to their colleagues in exchange for donations.
They have raised £400 to date.
