A charity that cares for people who have suffered strokes will purchase new outdoor seating with money received from a police donation.

Horsham police has donated £250 to The Phoenix Stroke Club.

Ann Wilson, assistant manager of The Phoenix Stroke Club, said: “I would like to say how grateful we are for the kind donation, it will be used towards some garden furniture for our members to sit on in the summer.

“PCSO Tracy Bicknell is always very supportive and has recently visited to talk about scams in the area.”

PCSO Bicknell said: “The Phoenix Stroke Club provides immense support to local residents who have suffered from a stroke, and they have also helped support Sussex Police campaigns and welcomed us to their facility to enable us to provide valuable crime prevention advice to their members.

“I am looking forward to visiting the club in the New Year and seeing their new garden furniture in situ.”

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund, made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the court and then sold.
