POLICE badges will be sold to raise money for the museum.
Former special constable Adam Lowe, who resigned from the volunteer role in February, has donated 100 pin badges to Rutland County Museum, where he volunteers regularly.
The pin badges, which are replicas of the original cap badge for Rutland County Police, were originally made to raise funds for the charity Care of Police Survivors, which helps the families of police officers who have lost their lives, and raised about £200.
But Mr Lowe decided that once he resigned, he would donate the left over badges to the museum. They are on sale for £2 each.
Mr Lowe, who is the branch manager of Travis Perkins in Oakham, said: “The museum is an under utilised resource and I think it is a fantastic facility that needs as much support as possible.”
