In 1945 my Grandfather a serving police officer died at the age of 39. He died of complications following routine surgery, he'd developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis and died from the resulting Pulmonary Embolism. He was survived by his wife and four boys, the youngest of who, was just eight weeks old. These four boys were assisted by the fund. It was often recounted the positive impact the fund had on their lives particularly the parties at Christmas they attended and they made their situation more bearable.

I never knew my grandfather, but was immensely proud of him being a police officer, and couldn't imagine how hard it was for my grandmother in that era, when help was hard to get. This year was when my husband was diagnosed with a DVT that I was forced to think about what could have so easily become my reality.

Whilst sitting waiting for a diagnosis with my husband in the hospital, I looked up and there stood in front of me was a Met Police officer, it was then I vowed if I got a VMLM place this year, this was what I would raise for... just a small Thank you for those 70+ years ago, that kept a family together, and grateful recognition that our situation was easily resolved.
