Police in East Sussex have donated money from confiscated property to a hospice fun day.

Battle police donated £250 to Crowhurst Park to help fund a family fun day in aid of St Michael's Hospice on Saturday 30 August.

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.

Events manager Julie Hannah said: "We would like to thank Sussex Police for their kind donation.

"This is an event that we hold annually within the park and each year we try to choose a different charity.

"In past years we have held this as a daytime event only, this year we are going to continue it into the evening.

"Our aim is of course to raise as much money and awareness for the chosen charity as we can, but we also like to offer a safe location for families to bring their children along for a fun-filled day."

PCSO Emma Phillips said: "We are looking forward to attending the event again this year as in the past we have brought police cars and equipment for everyone to have a look at.

"I have personally attended several of these events and they are always very well organised with plenty of activities for all to enjoy."
