St Andrew’s Police Treatment Centre, a Harrogate based charity on Harlow Moor Road, opened from 2pm until 5pm on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September providing visitors with the opportunity to come into the building and see first-hand the state of the art facilities on offer to injured and ill police officers.
A wide variety of other activities were also available including watching North Yorkshire police dogs Rambo and Max in action, talking to the local neighbourhood policing team, and taking part in a treasure hunt across the award winning grounds.
Fundraising Manager Nicola Ridgway said:
Of course the weather helped us have a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and I would like to thank all of you who came along to visit us and everyone who kindly volunteered their time.
This was only the second time we have taken part in Heritage Open days and hopefully we gave our visitors a greater insight into the hidden gem on their doorstep.
