Kent Police have donated £400 to Gravesham's Street Pastors team after they applied for a donation through the force's property fund.
The street pastors, who are based at the Methodist Church in Milton Road, Gravesend, are out in force in the town every Friday and Saturday night helping to ensure people get home safely after a night out.
Street pastor co-ordinator Samantha Coveney was presented with the donation on Monday July 30.
The money is going to be used to buy uniform for new volunteers and also equipment to help support vulnerable people.
Neil Loudon, Ch Insp for Kent Police said: “Gravesham Street Pastors do a superb job of strengthening community life and working for safer streets.
“They are committed to supporting vulnerable people during their time of need, regularly prevent people becoming victims of crime and undoubtedly reduce demand for Kent Police and I’m pleased we were able to support this worthy cause.”
