THERE will be a chance to throw wet sponges at police officers this weekend at a charity fun day.
Officers from The Larklands and Gallows Safer Neighbourhood Team will be in the stocks at the event on Sunday at the Stanton Institute to raise cash for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance and Alzheimers charities.
The event runs from 11am to 6pm and there will also be football, a tug-o-war match, a chance to ride a rodeo bull, a bouncy castle, climbing wall, Ozbox stall, a barbecue, raffle and more.
Police say anybody is welcome to come and join the fun.
