A WINDFALL from Staffordshire’s crime czar has proved music to the ears of a Stafford community group.
Highfields Community Group received £2,900 from the Commissioner’s Proceeds of Crime Fund to run weekly music and songwriting workshops for 10-15 year olds.
Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Ellis is pictured with project co-ordinator Charmaine Baines and Olivia Martin ,13.
Professional music artist Charmaine said: “Growing up on Highfields myself, there was never anything like this, which inevitably led to boredom and subsequently anti-social behaviour.
“Thanks to this project, these children looked forward to the workshops and the chance to take part in something constructive, showing themselves in a positive light.”
