Local fundraising results in a Police Property Fund Donation to St John Ambulance

Last night Sergeant Simon Causer of Wednesfield Police attended Ashmore Park Community Centre to hand over a cheque for £728 to the Wednesfield division of St John Ambulance. The money was raised through the Police Property Fund.

It came about when local active citizen Irene Dodd of Ashmore Park applied for the money after a chance conversation at the Wednesfield North PACT meeting with Sergeant Causer. Irene who had been raising money for the charity, who attend local events offering first aid and run regular session engaging with young people in the area, by asking for donations locally jumped at the chance when she realised money was available.

The Police Property Act Fund is money made from the sale of stolen goods seized by police. The stolen goods are confiscated from criminals by the courts and, if anything can’t be returned to its original owner, it is sold.

Angela Hall leader of the St John Ambulance in Wednesfield thanked Irene and added “I’m really pleased with this donation we’ll now be able to buy the flags we need for our divisions and with a little more fundraising the better tents we’ve been hoping to get for when we’re out at events”

About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!
