A scheme to reward young people in Spalding and South Holland who perform good deeds has received a £500 boost.
The One Good Deed Deserves Another initiative has been awarded the money from Police Mutual’s national community sponsorship programme, Force for Good.

Spalding police officer Paul Cooper, who is setting up One Good Deed Deserves Another, said: “Our local Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers see a huge number of good deeds take place in Spalding on a day-to-day basis.
“The launch of One Good Deed Deserves Another will reward these actions and bring our diverse community, which includes a high proportion of Eastern European families, together.
“The initiative also aims to build a positive rapport between the police force and the local residents.”
Police Mutual, which helps serving and retired police officers, staff and their families with finances, launched Force for Good, in September.
Chief executive Stephen Mann said: “The £500 grant from Police Mutual will be used to purchase vouchers redeemable in local retailers, which will be given out by police officers and police community support officers to young people carrying out an act of kindness.”
He added: “We came up with Force for Good because we wanted to give the police family the power to identify and reward causes they feel improve lives within their communities.
“We have been staggered and delighted by both the quantity and quality of entries received. We are confident this initiative will bring communities together as a force for good.”
