West Park First School in Worthing will be able to purchase outdoor play equipment for reception children, thanks to a donation of £200 from Sussex Police.

Helen Manley and PC David Whitcombe, from Sussex Police licensing team, presented the school with the cheque on Tuesday, April 21.

Head teacher Peter Neale said: “We are very grateful to receive this kind donation from Sussex Police. I know our reception children will enjoy playing with the equipment that we are buying for our new early years outdoor play area.

Helen Manley added: “Sussex Police is pleased to be able to assist the school to provide a stimulating outdoor environment for their youngest children and encouraging their development and learning”

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