Gatwick-Based Charity Receives Sussex Police Good Cause Funding
At the end of last year, Sussex Police’s Gatwick Prevention Team was able to secure the funding for airport-based charity, Gatwick Travelcare through the Police Property Act Fund (PPAF).
Gatwick TravelCare, which was established in 1986, helps around 2,500 people every year through its team of five advisers and 24 volunteers offering everyone who need it, care and assistance.
The fund from which Gatwick Travelcare benefitted from is made up of monies received by the police from the sale of found property and from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
Speaking about the donation, Inspector James Biggs, of the Gatwick Prevention Team, said: “Travelcare and Sussex Police have an excellent relationship at Gatwick and often work very closely together.”
Linda Comber, from Gatwick Travelcare, said: “On behalf of the Gatwick Travelcare team, I cannot express our sincere gratitude enough to Sussex Police for the generous donation to our charity.”
