Two Thanet charities have each received a donation courtesy of the Kent Police Property Fund.


The Thanet Disabled Riding Centre in Broadstairs and Christians Against Poverty in Ramsgate each received a cheque for £500 from Chief Inspector Sharon Adley during a presentation at Margate Police Station.

The money donated is raised through the sale of lost property each year and handed out to many worthwhile ventures all over the county in order to support their good work. Each charity is nominated by an employee at Kent Police.

Chief Inspector Sharon Adley at Kent Police said: ‘I am delighted we have been able to support these two local charities who I know will benefit greatly from our donation.


‘The Thanet Disabled Riding Centre provides facilities for more than 60 riders each week who have physical and learning difficulties. They will use the cash to cover the cost of maintaining their premises, buy horse food, hay and pay for vet bills.


‘Christians Against Poverty works alongside the Community Church in Ramsgate and is a free service that aims to provide a solution to those living in poverty and suffering from unmanageable debt. The money donated from Kent Police will go towards supplying food, electricity and other emergency items to those with very little.’
