Peter Baker with sons Luke & Adam.

Sat, 22 Apr 2017

What do you say to your children if they ask, " Dad, what would happen to us if you were killed in your line of duty?" As a serving officer for Northumbria Police, Peter explained to his sons that one of the sources of help could come from Care Of Police Survivors (COPS). COPS is a UK registered charity dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives on duty. Adam and Luke responded by writing a song to raise money for the charity. That song is now available for download from reputable sources. Peter, Luke and Adam told their story to Gary Burgham on The Saturday Breakfast Programme.

Here, they both talk candidly about learning to cope with the disease. If you'd like to help in any way, or just talk to Will, you are most welcome to call 07814 965724.
