Greater Manchester Police has put together a great video to raise awareness of Forever Manchester.
Officers and police staff from across the Force joined Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy to recreate the recent Cadbury advert featuring the hit song ‘I Can Boogie’ by Baccara.
A previous spoof video based on Gangnam Style has had nearly 63,500 hits on YouTube, and we hope this one is going to be bigger and better.
In this latest video the Chief can be seen singing and dancing along to the tune being played by a call centre while waiting for his call to be answered. He is later joined by colleagues who take to their seats in unison to the 70’s disco beats.
Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy said: “Forever Manchester is a fantastic local charity which has supported over 20,000 local community projects with grants to help volunteers. So often we see that the best solutions to problems come from local people putting in voluntary effort in their own local areas. This is a great way to deal with issues such as antisocial behaviour, repeat offending, loneliness and isolation.
“This tongue in cheek video is just one way of raising the profile of this worthwhile charity and it’s nice to show everyone that we don’t like to take ourselves too seriously.
“Supporting the community is just one part of our role as protectors of Greater Manchester.”
Nick Massey DL, Chief Executive for Forever Manchester, said: “We’re happy that the force is with us.”
