Isle of Wight Police have thanked an anonymous Islander for a generous donation towards the fund opened in memory of PC Andrew Harper, who lost his life after being dragged along by a vehicle as he attended a reported burglary in Sulhamstead, Berkshire.
A picture of the £100 cash donation dropped off at Ryde police station was shared on social media along with the hand-written envelope message saying ‘Please put this towards the funds for the officer killed on duty. Thank you for everything you all do for us. I am very grateful to every one of you.’
An official JustGiving fundraiser for the murdered cop, who had been married for just 4 weeks, raised over £100,000 within 24 hours of being launched. Ten males between the ages of 13 and 30 have been held in connection with PC Harper’s death.
