Groups bid for cash taken from loan sharks



Have your say

Ten community groups across the East Riding are bidding for money taken from illegal loan sharks.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is now asking residents to vote for four of the 10 groups, with each of the winners getting £500.

The project is part of a campaign across the UK by The England Illegal Money Lending Team, which investigates and prosecutes loan sharks. The money comes from cash and assets taken off prosecuted loan sharks, as proceeds of crime, which is then distributed locally.
