The Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund have today announced that HRH the Duke of Cambridge has agreed to be the Patron of their charity commencing in January 2017.

The Orphans fund began in 1870 as an Orphanage, which they believe makes it the oldest police charity in the world. The Orphanage closed in 1937 and became the present fund which makes 2017 the 80th year.

The Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund’s first Royal Patron was Queen Victoria and they now continue their link with the Royal Family with their new patron, the Duke of Cambridge.

The charity is funded by the interest and dividends from the money that was invested when the Orphanage was sold, by a percentage of the contributions serving officers make to the Metropolitan and City Police Benevolent Funds and Public donations.
