THE band of the Hampshire Constabulary has released a new album to mark 175 years of public service and raise charity cash.

For every £10 CD of the ‘Duty Calls’ album sold, £1 will be donated to the COPS UK (Care of Police Survivors UK) charity which supports families of officers who have died in the line of duty. All other profits will help fund the band’s running costs.

Major Pete Curtis MBE RM, director of music, said: ‘[The band’s] collective enthusiasm and passion for music is reflected throughout this new CD. The quality of the playing is excellent with some outstanding solo contributions, and they really have a brilliant product that they should be very pleased with.

‘The fact that it will also raise a significant sum of money for ‘COPS UK,’ the charity that directly supports families of those police officers and police workers who pay the ultimate sacrifice, helping to rebuild their shattered lives, is even better.’
