Police presnt £250 to fund Winter Garden ceremony for youth services

Police have donated £250 to East Sussex Council for Voluntary Youth Services to help fund its award ceremony at the Winter Garden.

The presentation was made by the East Sussex Divisional Commander Acting Chief Superintendent Neil Honnor. The award will go towards the overall cost of the event and the trophies.

Arwyn Evans, chief executive of SPARK - A Network for Young People’s Organisations, said, “We are delighted that Sussex Police are supporting the volunteer award category at the SPARK award ceremony. This will be a great encouragement to the young people and organisations who are part of the SPARK network.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF), made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.

Acting Chief Superintendent Neil Honnor said, “SPARK provide a valuable service to the many organisations that work with young people in East Sussex. Sussex Police is pleased to lend its support to the positive opportunities these organisations offer young people in the county.”
