Is Everest Base Camp on your bucket list?

Apparently the trek to Everest Base Camp is the most popular ‘bucket list’ item - ever.

Suitably fit NARPO members now have an opportunity to make the iconic trek for a reduced price thanks to national child victims of crime charity, Embrace.

 Taking place between 2 November and 21 November, and guided by Sherpa Dawa Geljen and his experienced team, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

 The all-inclusive price of air fares, transfers, accommodation and meals, is just £2,500, a saving of £350.

Who are we?

The National Association of Retired Police Officers (N.A.R.P.O.) represents retired Police Officers of all ranks  from  all police forces throughout England and Wales. It also extends cover to all Police widows.  N.A.R.P.O. is a rank free association dedicated to improving benefits for all its  members. The welfare of  our  members  is of prime  concern and our branch is on hand to give support and advice to those who  request it.  We offer a range of  additional services to  members including advice on pensions and other  issues affecting their welfare and well being.

A branch based organisation, formed in 1919,  N.A.R.P.O. still has local branches spread throughout England  and  Wales. Governance  of  the organisation is provided by a  National Executive Committee elected on a  regional  basis.  Rules and policy  are considered  by  an annual conference in September each year, informed  by the  publication of an  annual  report.

In  service, your interests were looked after by the Police Federation, which ceases on  retirement.  N.A.R.P.O. represents our  members interests in their retirement.

Remember, we are the only organisation that was  set up  with a  specific task in  mind, that of looking after your interests and health. Only together can we  work to change  the life of  retired  Police Officers and Widows for the better. Most benefits apply to  members only, so why not join today and   feel  part of our community and  rest assured that we have your interest in hand.

If you have served and wish to join us, or just looking for more information, then  drop us an email or  write  and we will get back to  you. You can find our contact  details and further information concerning  both local  and national issues within this site, plus links to  other sites of interest to our members.

We thank you and hope you enjoyed your visit to our site . Please remember to check back for the most up to date information.
