Young girls in Eastbourne have received a financial boost from the police.
Chief Inspector Emma Brice has presented a cheque for £250 to The Girls’ Brigade.
Girls' Brigade Leader for the town Jenny Collins said, "We are so grateful for the money that has been donated to us. Girls Brigade headquarters have recently changed the uniform so this money will go towards buying new uniforms for all girls. It will be great that they can have the relevant polo shirts so they all feel equally included. Next year is a big year for us as we will be celebrating our 70th anniversary.”
Eastbourne's District Commander, Chief Inspector Emma Brice said, "I was very honoured to attend the Girls' Brigade meeting to see how much the individuals all enjoy and learn various new skills from the activities arranged by the volunteer leaders.
"I am hoping this donation in buying uniforms will help encourage future generations of young girls in joining the Girls' Brigade in Eastbourne.”
The £250 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.
