Police cash for charities

Police in Gravesham are offering charities or community groups the chance to claim money raised from lost property

Could your community group get police cash?

Officers in Gravesham would like to hear from local charities and community organisations, who may be able to benefit from a financial contribution from the Kent Police Property Fund.

The property fund is an excellent way for us to be able to help fund community projects. I have had the pleasure of previously presenting cheques to a number of charities from the scouts, football clubs, centres for those with disabilities and crime prevention groups. I look forward to hearing from more organisations and hearing how a cheque for £400 can contribute to their community projects.

– District Commander for Gravesham, Chief Inspector Philip Painter

The Kent Police property fund is generated from the sale, at auction, of unclaimed lost property and items seized in police operations. The proceeds raised at these auctions are then presented to local charitable groups that work for the good of the local community.

Anyone who wishes to apply for a donation from the Kent Police Property Fund in the Gravesham area, should contact Chief Inspector Philip Painter, Kent Police, North Kent Police Station, Thames Way, Northfleet, DA11 8BD.
