COMMUNITY SUPPORT FOR CRIME-HIT CHARITY
September 25 2015.
Community transport charity CTLA has received welcom support from various groups and individuals following the callous theft of exhaust systems on the 8th of September, putting two vehicles out of action and leaving staff and volunteers devastated.
Donations were received from individuals through the localgiving online site of just over £100, with another £100 donation received from the Director of Northstar Technology Ltd, Christian Fleming, who said: “While meeting at Peacehaven Chamber of Commerce this week, we heard the awful news about the break-in that CTLA suffered. We hope our donation will help close the unexpected funding hole in the CTLA finances and keep this vital community service running.”
Administration Assistant Marilyn Nolan held a cake sale at SCDA Nursery on Denton Island, raising £25, and the ladies from the Hillcrest Centre 'Knit and Natter' group held a collection at their weekly meeting and donated £13.
Roy's Liquor Store has a collection tin on the counter for customers to make a donation and the Body Shop Foundation in Littlehampton has sent a box of products to help raise funds through a raffle.
Community Manager Paula Woolven thanked everyone for their kindness saying: "Some of our faith in human nature has been restored thanks to the wonderful people who have contacted us with messages of support and donations."
