Seized cash pays for Woodside cycling project
10:00am Saturday 12th May 2012 in Bradford
Police are helping young people in Bradford to get a handle on road safety.
They have put £500, seized from criminals under the Proceeds of Crime Act, into a community bike project in the Woodside area which aims to provide eight to 13-year-olds with the knowledge and skills to ride and maintain their bike.
PCSO Paul Walker, of the Queensbury, Royds and Wibsey Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This cash, seized from criminals in Bradford, has been provided to help the young people receive the right training with the right equipment.
“We have been able to supply bikes to the Sandale Centre and funding for storage. This is being used to the advantage of all those who attend.
“As a result of these facilities, the centre has been able to encourage eight to 13-year-olds to attend summer drop-in sessions and undertake cycling proficiency skills.
“Ultimately this will keep them and other road users safe on the streets of Bradford.”
