The Coldcroft Shire Horse Challenge

9th July 2021

On Friday 9th July, we went out to line Crowlea Road to cheer Jamie Alcock on his way, after he had stayed in Longhoughton over night,. Jamie Alcock is a Gloucestershire farmer who is raising funds for police and firefighters’ charities by driving his pair of Shire horses 650 miles to the north of Scotland, in memory of his late, ex-policeman brother.

The Coldcroft Shire Horse Challenge was raising funds for a charity, Police Care UK, that helped support Christopher through more than a decade of round-the-clock nursing care, though 25% of the funds raised will also go to The Fire Fighters Charity.
