Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner has awarded £41,000 to the Road Victims Trust.
Sir Graham Bright provided the grant in recognition of the work the charitable body undertakes in support of families of those killed in collisions in Cambridgeshire.
Mark Turner, chief executive of the Road Victims Trust, said: “Every year, between 30 and 35 people are killed on Cambridgeshire’s roads. This funding will enable us to continue providing emotional and practical support to families of fatal road traffic collisions.”
Sir Graham said: “I am committed to tackling issues of road safety and will do all I can to improve the safety of our roads for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
“Despite improvements in road safety over the last decade, the Trust’s services are sadly called upon all too often. This money is in recognition of the excellent work the Trust continues to do across Cambridgeshire.”

Lady Susan Acland, patron of the charity added: “The Road Victims Trust offers such an essential service, as they come to you and offer a helping hand and focused support in those early days when you can’t think about or do anything. Feeling alone with your thoughts after something like that is a terrible place to be, so if someone can make you feel you’re not alone and that things will get better, that’s a really wonderful thing.”
