TWO police officers from Wellington will swap their beat for the capital this Sunday (April 13) as they tackle the London Marathon.

Sgt Helen Boyd and PC Dan Bishop will be joined by Chris O’Connor as they raise cash for Guide Dogs.

PC Bishop said: “For the past six months we’ve worked extremely hard to reach a fundraising target of £6,000 for Guide Dogs, an amazing charity that supports blind and visually impaired people throughout the UK like my sister Andrea.

"Amazingly, we’ve already raised £9,500, but we’d love to make it £10,000 by the weekend.”
