North Police Scotland played Police Scotland Thistles Rugby Club in the Jack Calvert Memorial Cup last month at Deeside Rugby in Banchory.

And their fundraising – including a raffle and auction - has raised a remarkable £5,500, which has been split between Friends of Roxburghe House Grampian and The Police Children's Charity.

Badenoch-born policeman Jack Calvert (pictured below) died of bowel cancer last year aged 32. He was a great Scottish rugby fan and a former Police Scotland North flanker. The match was played in his memory and to raise funds for the two charities.
