Bid for a char­ity cash do­na­tion

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPERATION STACK -

CHAR­ITY groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions are be­ing in­vited to bid for cash from the South Kent Po­lice Prop­erty Fund. Ev­ery year, Kent Po­lice gives away around £4,000 from the fund to lo­cal groups and char­i­ties in the Ash­ford, Shep­way and Dover dis­tricts. The fund is made up of the pro­ceeds of un­claimed lost prop­erty and un­claimed goods that have been re­cov­ered from bur­glar­ies and sold at auc­tion. Any char­ity group that would ben­e­fit from a cash do­na­tion of about £250 can ap­ply. Ap­pli­ca­tions are sent to a panel, who con­sider how many peo­ple in Kent will ben­e­fit from the do­na­tion and whether the money will be used for spe­cific projects. Do­na­tions to me­mo­rial funds, in­di­vid­u­als and for pay­ing wages for staff will not be con­sid­ered.

To ap­ply, write to Ch Supt Steve Har­ris, Area Com­man­der, South Kent Po­lice, Folkestone Po­lice Sta­tion, Bou­verie Road West, Folkestone, CT20 2SG, by Fri­day April 13. Ap­pli­ca­tions should con­tain the name and ad­dress of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, a con­tact name and num­ber, a brief but in­for­ma­tive de­scrip­tion of their work and what they will use the money for.
