Police are organising a family day at Kentwell Hall in Long Melford in aid of children with cancer.

Supported by police officers from Suffolk, Jack’s Pack raises money for youngsters with the childhood cancer neuroblastoma.

It also helps families with the cost of sending children abroad to receive treatment and has been going for seven years.

The family day on Friday, June 6, from 4pm to 10pm, is being organised by three police officers – Claire Napper, from Suffolk Police, Louise Wright and Kalpna Suthar, both from the Metropolitan Police.

Jack’s Pack was initially set up in aid of Jack Brown to raise funds for treatment not available in the UK.

Jack’s parents, both Metropolitan Police officers, started a campaign to raise funds to bring therapies available elsewhere to the UK.

Ms Suthar said: “Every year in May, approximately 80 officers from the Metropolitan Police, Suffolk Police and Essex Police complete a half marathon in New York and then take part in a plane pull at John F Kennedy Airport against members of US law enforcement teams.

“This trip is paid for by officers and all money raised goes to the charity.”
