Support family of fallen Police Officers wristband £2

Found 22nd Mar 2017
This seems very appropriate. £2 including postage to help COPS charity - help support the families left behind following an Officer losing their lives doing their job to protect us all.

RIP PC Palmer. Support our Police and emergency services.

​Wrong. Opportunist moment used to gain support for a charity.

Couldnt agree more.

Also if you care for that cause simply make a donation, no wristbands or P&P involved.
Should forward this onto the MP's the officer was protecting,the ones who are well protected whilst the police and public take the damage.

Really?
There's no obligation to vote on any deals and what personal gain would the OP benefit from other than an imaginary badge of honour?
A decent gesture to bring this to the attention of the masses, however I must agree with a comment that states that you could simply make a donation instead.
a good cause, however the government should be looking after the families anyway, same with soldiers families.
I partly agree, but giving heat will give the post prominence to support ALL those families that have lost loved ones serving and protecting the public. Heat added to raise the profile.
Whether opportunistic or not, it's a small price to pay to help support families, not only by donation, but also by a visual support for them. People wear poppies, ribbons and other emblems to display their support for which others have created to try and do some good. It doesn't matter when or why this was posted, if it helps and does some good then support it.
Not really a deal. Would be better I misc but I agree it is a good and poignant post.
heat added, ofc its not a deal, but at least i could make donation, otherwise i wouldnt know there is that kind of charity.
Instead of arguing, why not give the direct link to donating, which is
ukcops.org/don…php
Government should be the one donating.
This deal is the same when a singer or actor dies and suddenly someone promotes his/her work so i do think this post is inappropriate as people should support that person all the time not just when something happens

I would prefer donating so no heat from me.

I am also pretty sure so much people just hit the hot button and move on. I would be really curious how many of you actually buy this and wear this bracelet otherwise you are just hypocrites

If it helps raise some money for the family's of the Officers who put their lives on the line for us, then what possibly can any normal person find offence in. The Government look after the scumbags not the Police so why not help. Some kind of Corbynesque stupidity to even consider criticism of this good posting. Explains so much about this country now.

​Indeed. Well said.

Anyway not a deal, so shouldn't be here. Hopefully someone will expire or report it.

How Pathetic
What is wrong with people on this site. Some of you need lives instead of moaning at the op. What's also quite silly is people bite, when a bad comment is made ignoring is easy you're giving gratification by arguing.
Always doubtful about charities now after some of the reports about them, especially around the Blackpool area. 'Charities' with charitiy numbers but finding out only 20% actually goes to the charity funding itself.
Thanks for posting, grabbed a few for me and workmates.
Wow, reading some of these comments makes​ you proud to be british, if it was a member of your family you would be right behind the charity. I was unaware of the charity and will make a donation. I also agree there should be no need for charities of this kind as families should be taken care of by the government.

There are some causes out there well worth supporting, not just at specific times, but ALL the time. BUT BE AWARE
Most chuggers work for chugging agencies and are typically paid between £7.50 and £9.50 an hour. Charities will usually pay out between £80 and £120 for each person who agrees to set up a direct debit. This means that pretty much all of a direct-debit donor’s first year’s donations, and sometimes almost two years’ donations, will go to the chugging agency and the chugger.

But that's exactly what you just did yourself by responding about bad comments!
i hope this gets the heat it deserves.
A policeman with a family died and three other innocents at the hands of a coward.
And people are moaning about giving heat for a good cause, really???

Or, of course, you could buy the wristband and promote the cause. And then make a donation on top.

Heated - thanks OP (and ignore the self sanctimonious idiotic comments).
maybe if the police officer helping keep terrorists off out streets was armed this wouldn't be necessary. Very sad ; (

That's why i never sign up, surely more than 20% of this £2 goes direct to the charity. I'm even warey about donating cash in buckets etc , how much of that gets to the charity. Only by donating direct to the charities bank account can you be sure no-one takes a cut. Hopefully no one is on the fiddle on the inside.

​he was armed,watch the news
I split my charity donations between the tyre fitters' benevolent fund and the toilet cleaners' charity. These are important roles who without them, our lives would be much worse and deaths in service occur there too.
These people are heroes in my eyes, not least because they probably didn't even choose those careers, they probably do them out of necessity.
?????????, Really.

The officer who was killed was UNARMED - get your facts straight.

From the Guardian: "The police officer has been named as PC Keith Palmer, 48, a member of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command, with 15 years’ service in the force. He was unarmed."
I cannot believe just how many morons this site accomodates. Who really cares about virtual brownie points for posting a deal?!?

The OP has brought this charity to the attention of thousands of people who may not have known of this charities existence until this was posted. The men and women who risk their lives on a daily basis to keep us safe deserve our respect and the very least we can do is help their families if the the police officer has been injured or killed in the line of duty.

Heat from me OP. Thanks for bringing this great cause to my attention.

I wish people would drop the ego, a little respect does nobody any harm and were these brainwashed people to learn that the world would be a better place for us all to live in. The guy died doing his job protecting us, for that he has my respect and I wish his family all the best.
