Night Challenge 2018
The Tribune Trust is proud to support Humberside Police's Night Challenge 2018 event.
Following on from the success of the Night Challenge 2017 event the Tribune Trust has given Humberside Police a grant to run the event again in 2018.
Night Challenge will take place in Brantingham Dale on Saturday 24th March 2018. It is expected that 150 young people will take part in the event supported by volunteers from Humberside Police, Humberside Fire & Rescue Service, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Yorkshire Ambulance Service, Yorkshire 4x4 response, Not in Our Community, Eskimo Soup, Yorkshire & Lincolnshire Search and Rescue, the Armed Forces and local Barristers.
The young people participating will orientate themselves in teams around a 12 mile course, whilst they face a series of problem solving challenges.
The challenges relate to child sexual exploitation and online grooming. The challenges will provide participants with a better understanding of the dangers of these issues and also give them an insight into how the Police and their partners investigate these types of offences.
Those participating will see the importance of teamwork, good communication, leadership and self- confidence. Their physical endurance, resilience and problem solving abilities will be tested during the event. They will also get the opportunity to work with a variety of emergency services and their partner agencies and get to see things from their perspective.
Julie Good, the Chair of the Tribune Trust, together with Gill Drewry, the High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire and Andrew Clark, the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire are shown presenting the grant cheque to Chris Rowley, the Deputy Chief Constable of Humberside Police.
