Young actors in Battle gain a welcome boost from police

News   •   Jul 10, 2019 08:32 BST

Youngsters with a passion for acting will benefit from a £250 grant secured through the Police Property Act Fund.

This is made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the courts and then sold.

The donation to the Streets of Battle theatre group was arranged by Police Community Support Officer Daryl Holter.

The group's chairperson, Kerri Deeprose, said: "This money will help to support an outreach programme for young people.

"Free workshops for seven to 11-year-olds, led by street theatre professionals the Inside Out Theatre Company, will see the children perform alongside them as Streets of Battle."

PCSO Holter said: "I'm delighted to be able to help the Streets of Battle group in this way. Engaging with and encouraging local young people is vitally important."
