Items taken from criminals have helped support a vital support charity in Northfleet.

Walk Tall, based in Lower Road, provides a range of projects including a study programme for young adults, language sessions for unaccompanied asylum seekers and a free counselling service for youngsters aged four to 19.

Now, thanks to a Kent Police initiative, the 15-year-old charity has received a £500 boost.

The money will go towards laptops for the charity’s daytime study programmes.

“This organisation provides invaluable support and creates new opportunities for vulnerable people across our community,” said Sgt Carlie Deacon, from the Gravesham Community Safety Unit.

The money is raised via the Kent Police Property Fund, which auctions off items seized during police operations, and donates the proceeds to local organisations.

Walk Tall also offers low-cost counselling for adults.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
