Sussex volunteer carries the Torch for Crimestoppers
Sussex volunteer Alistair Harvey carried the Olympic Torch on Monday 16th July [20 July 2012]
Alistair Harvey has been a volunteer for Sussex Crimestoppers for three years and was nominated by the Regional Chair, Carolyn Collard to be an Olympic Torchbearer. He ran in the pouring rain on Monday, 16 July in Bognor Regis, West Sussex and we are so proud of him to not only represent Sussex Crimestoppers but also Leo House at Home, a charity that supports children and young people with a life-limiting condition.
Alistair said, "I loved every minute of it and it was such an honour to be there runnning for Leo house and Sussex Crimestoppers and with such a great group of people and listening to their humbling stories of personal loss and reasons for running."
Alistair is our technology expert and as such has created a film to promote SCS; numerous Power Point presentations and now updates our website - all jobs that are very important to our work. Alistair assures us that he enjoys the digital space and what technology can do to influence peoples' lives and says, "I'm more than happy to use the skills I do have to promote the work of SCS in whatever form that takes."
He continues, "I look at our volunteer committee and see a great band of people from all walks of life trying to ensure that both the crimes we hear about every day, and the ones that we don't, the ones that we shy away from and feel don't happen in Sussex be addressed. If you speak directly with the victims of crime you realise that it's them and their friends who suffer, and go on suffering for many years after the event and this shouldn't be the case. Crimestoppers provides that vital link and allows all the counties to help make their areas a safer place to live."
Crimestoppers is an independent charity and not part of the police. If you wish to pass on information about crime anonymously, please call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or fill out our anonymous online Giving Information Form.
