A local scout group is the latest organisation to benefit from Kent Police Property Fund, a police initiative which raises money by selling items that have been seized during operations.

Items taken are sold at auction so that proceeds can be given to charities and local organisations.

The Culverstone and Vigo Scouts were presented with a cheque of £250 on Wednesday, March 14, from Det Con Clare Bourke from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.

The money is going to be put towards improvements of their Scout hut.

DC Bourke said: “The Scouts help young people undertake a large number of fun and exciting activities, it’s great to see those within the scouting movement having such a positive impact in the local community.

“I’m pleased that we have been able to support this excellent group.”
