Police Property Act funds support Bloxwich Brownies and Guides


7th Bloxwich Brownies and Guides receive their cheque.

Funds from the Police Property Act (PPA) supported the 7th Bloxwich Brownies and Guides group to hold a Queens Jubilee Jamboree earlier this month.

The fund consists of money raised from the sale of recovered property that has been in police possession for more than 12 months.

A £500 cheque was presented to the girl guides (see picture, above) and covered the cost of a new outdoor marquee tent which the group can use to host events and guiding activities. The new marquee will replace a former tent that was destroyed in strong winds last year.

Sergeant Andy Mchugh from Bloxwich West Neighbourhood Team, said:

“The group offer activities and support to the wider communities of Bloxwich and the money will help them in not only the Queens Diamond Jubilee Jamboree but any future events which they are looking to hold outdoors.”

The 7th Bloxwich Brownies and Guides is the latest community project to benefit from the Police Property Act.

In the last 10 years West Midlands Police has donated over £250,000 to local community groups and projects.
