Police in Mid and East Antrim were delighted to make a donation to a local charity following a forfeiture order granted by the courts in relation to a recent drugs case.
District Support Team Sergeant Michelle Adams explains:
“This was one of our cases that recently went through the courts. The Judge granted the order and as a result we were able to donate the £2,500 seized as part of our investigation to local charity Turning Point NI.
“We have no doubt the money will be put to good use and support people who are really in need.”
Turning Point NI is a mental health hub for those experiencing any form of mental health crisis.
The charity operates as an organisation within the Northern Health and Social Care Trust, aiming to reduce the intensity of suicide and self harming behaviours within the area through promoting positive mental well being, and working to build resilience and support to families who have been bereaved by suicide.
Trudi Hall from Turning Point NI commented:
“We would like to thank the police for nominating us as the chosen charity and we will ensure we put this money to use in supporting those in Ballymena who require our services.”
