Who We Are
Meet the trustees
We’re a team of seven trustees – all serving or former police officers – who run the Benevolent Fund Charity and are committed to supporting the whole West Midlands Police Family.
Our Operations Committee
Our Operations Committee is made up of a broader range of members – both serving officers and police staff.
Rev John Butcher BEM is the Force/Lead Chaplain at West Midlands Police. John became actively involved with the Benevolent Fund when he realised just how much it supports serving and retire police officers, police staff and their families.
The other members are John Carrington, Darren Neville, Steve Groves, Ben Whitehouse , George McDonnell and Bryan Henry.
Our Benevolent Fund Team
requiring financial assistance, co-ordinates the paperwork and presents the cases to the Board of Trustees.
Jan Burchell, Company Secretary and Finance Manager looks after the finances for the charity.
Della Poolton is our Admin and Finance Officer who plays an integral part in the day-to-day running of the Fund and Nicki Biddlestone, the charity’s Communications and Marketing Manager.
