The SPBF is delighted to support the Police Treatment Centres‘ £2.5 million redevelopment of Castlebrae. Trustees agreed to donate £32,000 to equip the facilities with 13 new state of the art cardio vascular exercise machines. Watch the video below for a tour of the facilities.
Dunfermline based running club, Carnegie Harriers were delighted to make a donation of £820 recently to the Scottish Police Benevolent Fund. This donation was raised from part of the entry fees for the Carnegie Harriers Devilla Forest Trail races held in February. These races start and finish within the grounds of the Scottish Police College at Tulliallan and provide an excellent base for race registration, changing and car parking. Race Director Allan Macaulay (right) and club Treasurer John Fulham (left) presented this cheque to Scottish Police Benevolent Fund’s Martin Bertram (centre) recently at Tulliallan Castle. The Charity is the official charity of the Police Service of Scotland and aims to deliver high quality Benevolent & Welfare services to improve the quality of life of its membership who are in conditions of need.

The Scottish Police Benevolent Fund wish to extend sincere condolences to the families of all those who have lost loved ones in this tragic incident. Our thoughts and sympathies are with them and also with the friends and colleagues who knew them at this very difficult time.
We also wish to recognise the efforts of the emergency services and thank everyone who has assisted and supported those involved in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
Our thanks are also extended to the many individuals and local businesses and charitable organisations who continue to provide support and assistance to the emergency services who remain engaged at the scene.
Trustees, in consultation with the Police Service of Scotland and the Scottish Police Federation, will consider the most appropriate and effective way to support and assist the families of the three aircrew involved.
It is evident this tragedy has been felt not just within the policing world but the wider public beyond and we are very grateful for all the messages of support that have been forthcoming.
