2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Metropolitan Police Orphanage, which was established in in January 1870 and opened its doors that October. In 1871 it was extended to include the City of London Police.


The Orphanage closed in 1937, replaced the very next day by the Metropolitan and City Police Orphans Fund.


The charity supports the children of serving and former officers of the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police who subscribed to the Fund whilst serving, and who are either deceased or retired on pension and are so incapacitated as to be unable to contribute materially to the family upkeep.


Please help me raise much-needed funds for the Metropolitan & Police Orphans Fund. You can read more about the charity here.
