Horse Sanctuary Duped By Suspected Conman

A small Polegate horse sanctuary has become the victim of an apparent fraud after a man offered to raise money for it, but has only handed over a few pounds.

It appears that, with the Little Bramley Riding Sanctuary's consent, the man has offered rides and group parties, but has not passed on the money that he has received from donors.

PC Luke Brown said: "In the meantime, people have turned up to visit and the sanctuary has honoured their bookings, but they are only a small organisation and can ill afford to be taken advantage of as their limited funds are aimed at caring for horses with no other future.

"We are trying to assess the scale of this potential fraud and would ask anyone who may have dealt with this man (not the sanctuary directly), even if you have not paid money to him, to contact 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 556 of 19/03."
