Chief's ball for charity

Tuesday, 04 August, 2009

Almost £3000 has been awarded to two charities in Hertfordshire, following the Chief Constable's Summer Ball. Chief Constable Frank Whiteley presented two cheques of £1400 to representatives from the Stevenage Community Trust and Herts in Trust, at Police Headquarters in Welwyn Garden City last month.

The money was raised from a raffle, auction, donations and ticket profits, following the lavish event held in June. Chief Constable Frank Whiteley said: "I am delighted we have been able to award these two worthy charities with funds, especially after such a fantastic event. The Stevenage Community Trust and Herts in Trust are helping to secure safety, justice, and reassurance for all by funding life changing projects, events and helping people who are in need. With the money raised from the Ball, we have been able to help them continue their valuable work in providing for our communities."

The Stevenage Community Trust is an independent charitable trust which seeks to enhance the quality of life of people living in Stevenage and the surrounding area, by providing grants for groups and organisations. Herts in Trust is the official charity of Hertfordshire Constabulary and Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.
