A ‘pants’ charity run along the seafront in Bexhill was given a police donation to go towards providing first aid support on Monday (April 18).

Police gave Pantman £158 to help pay for St John Ambulance to be at the third annual Powering the Prom run in August which supports Cancer Research UK.

Pantman, who is a cancer survivor himself said: “We are delighted with the generous donation, thank you.”

The 5k family-friendly run allows participants to run, walk, sprint, amble, or for those with children, just bring the buggy along and raise money for charity.

The donation comes from the Police Property Act Fund, made up of monies received by the police from property confiscated by order of the courts and then sold.

To enable all money from the event to goes to Cancer Research, Pantman relies on donations and additional fundraising in the community to cover the expenses required to put on such an event.

Police community support officer Sam Kemp said: “It is great to see local people getting involved in a fun way to raise much needed funds for amazing charities, such as Cancer Research.”
