Gatwick Travelcare has received a £500 boost from Sussex Police.
Gatwick Prevention Team was able to secure the funding for the charity through the Police Property Act Fund. This 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.
Inspector James Biggs, of the Gatwick Prevention Team, said: “We are delighted to be able to support Gatwick Travelcare with this donation. Travelcare and Sussex Police have an excellent relationship at Gatwick and often work very closely together to help passengers who need assistance. Quite often these passengers are vulnerable, and to be able to support such a worthwhile charity is something Sussex Police is very proud to be able to do.”
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. Your support means a great deal to us. This donation really makes a difference, and allows us to continue providing support to passengers and visitors who find themselves in difficulty and distress.”
