These include sports clubs scout and guide organisations and other organisations giving support to those more needy than others. I recognise that many such organisations by their very nature stop or save many from a life of crime or give hope to those needing support. Whatever one thinks of our local Police and criminals £20,000 is an effective crime prevention cost if spent correctly."
