Crooks’ cash used to help Peak youngsters

Youngsters will benefit from a £500 cash boost for their youth club in Eyam thanks funding retrieved by police under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

The cash was secured by the Hathersage Safer Neighbourhood Team and was awarded to the youth club for the impact that it has on the local community.

The funding will be used to keep the club running and to provide activities and trips for the kids who use the centre in Eyam and the surrounding area.

POCA means anyone who profits from crime can lose the financial and lifestyle gains they have enjoyed.
