Superintendent Jim Liggett from GMPâ€™s Trafford Division said:
â€œPolice in Trafford regularly seize cash and assets from organised crime groups who cause nothing but misery within our communities.
â€œWe use some of these funds to tackle local crime fighting priorities for the benefit of the community, as well as for local community projects and engagement events.
â€œThis weekend, we have decided to use a small amount of this cash to bring happiness to young children within the community who have been affected by some form of criminality.
â€œI hope this small gesture will bring some happiness to the children and show the public that they remain at the heart of everything we doâ€.
