Criminal help for LGB16-Aug-2012
The proceeds from property confiscated by the police has come handy for the LGB Training Band.
The LGB Brass Training Band has received a great financial helping hand from the long arm of the law, thanks to a significant donation of £350 from the Police Property Act Fund.
The money comes from the sale of property confiscated by order of the court, and is administered by the Police Authority, with monies used to support local community groups.
Peter Cowlett, Youth Safety Inspector for Sussex Police, recently presented a cheque to Adam Kearley, Director of the LGB Training Band.
~ LGB Chairman Tony Line
Adam told 4BR: "We are delighted to receive such a generous donation. I will be looking into buying some form of uniform for the band, as well as some new music and possibly the refurbishment of one of the instruments."
LGB’s Chairman, Tony Line added: "It’s absolutely fantastic that small groups such as ours have access to the Fund. This donation will make a significant difference to our Training Band and allow the members the opportunity to experience music making that may otherwise not have been open to them."
