They said: “As our new Patron, we look forward to welcoming Her Royal Highness to our Centres to see first-hand the work that we do.”
Craig Grandison, Vice-Chairman of both The Police Treatment Centres and West Yorkshire Police Federation, said he welcomed Princess Anne’s support of the Treatment Centres. The centres are based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and Auchterarder in Perthshire.
He said: “I am immensely proud and honoured that HRH The Princess Royal has agreed to become the Police Treatment Centres’ new Patron.
“I will look forward to her being able to visit the Centres in the near future and see the tremendous work that we do for our colleagues. The support that her Royal Highness brings will further enhance the reputation of the PTC as a first-class treatment facility for the emergency services.”
The CEO of the Police Treatment Centres, Patrick Cairns, said: “For Her Royal Highness to convey her support for the Police Treatment Centres by becoming our Patron is a tremendous honour for our charity, and it is clear that “The Princess Royal understands the challenges that the police service is currently under and the work that we do at the PTC in treating ill and injured police officers for a range of physical and mental health injuries.”
The previous Princess Royal, Mary, Countess of Harewood, was the Police Treatment Centres’ Patron from 1953 – 1965.
