S3 Ep4 – ‘Cops for Ukraine’ and for each other; why solidarity matters

Like most of us, PC Jim Clark watched the Russian invasion of Ukraine as a bystander from afar last year.

In 2023, that changed.

The Cheshire Police Federation workplace representative, together with colleague PC Rob Stordy, launched Cops for Ukraine in February with the objective of raising money to pay for vital equipment, supplies, and aid that can be sent to police officers in the country impacted by the ongoing war.

Already, a sum close to £5,500 has been pledged.

PC Clark, part of Cheshire Constabulary’s rural crime team, tells host Andrew Simpson what motivated him to start the campaign and what he hopes it can achieve.

He talks too about the logistic challenges involved.
