Stolen goods help to fund county boxing club


A Lincolnshire boxing club has bought a new ring with the help of a grant from the Police Property Act Fund.

The Beach Bar Boxing Club in Sutton-on-Sea received three hundred pounds from the fund which was enough to have its facilities upgraded.

The club is just one of many local community organisations benefitting from the fund which raises money from the sale of property which can't be reunited with its owner.

Rob Hayes is the coach at the club, he says: "It is brilliant that something positive can come out of something negative."
