A cash boost will support a charity which helps Bognor Regis residents.

Sussex Police has donated £300 to the charity Action for Deafness to fund new maintenance equipment.

Charity co-ordinator Cathy Cobbold said: “Action for Deafness are extremely grateful to the Arun Neighbourhood Policing Team for their generous donation.”

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.

PCSOs Neil Billingham and Michelle Davies have worked closely with the charity looking at ways to improve communication.

PCSO Billingham said: “The charity provides fantastic support to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. The work they do is invaluable and the staff are welcoming and enthusiastic. It has been a pleasure to be able to provide this money to assist with the funding of such important equipment.”
