Police donation to fund street play sessions

A DONATION from police is to fund street play sessions in St Andrews Square for local children.

The £250 from Hastings Police was given to St Andrews Residents’ Association (STAR).

Jane Wright, STAR chairman, said: “This money has allowed STAR to fund more sessions over the summer. My thanks go to the Castle neighbourhood police team for their help with this much appreciated donation.”

The cash comes from the Police Property Act Fund, which redistributes the proceeds of crime to local good causes.

PCSO Lucy Paffett said: “Jane and her helpers work tirelessly to provide not only fun activities but support for their community.”
