News and Appeals 
Sculptures due to be auctioned for charity are damaged
A joint investigation between Sussex Police and Horsham District Council into the damage of sculptures has been launched.

Two sculptures as part of new the St Catherine’s Hospice HeART to Heart trail in Horsham town have been damaged.

The first was the ‘Treat Yourself’ sculpture in the centre of Horsham Park and was damaged between July 4 and 5. The second ‘Together we’re strong’ which is located outside the entrance of Swan Walk, West Street was damaged between 5pm on Saturday (July 13) and 10am on Sunday (July 14).

Prevention Inspector Sarah Leadbeatter said: “The damage which has been caused to these sculptures has truly saddened me. These sculptures have been designed by local artists and not only hold a lot of sentimental value but have been created to support a local charity and the incredible work they do.

“We are appealing to members of the public who have information on who caused this damage to come forward to us. Someone in the community must have some information which will aid our investigation and we would like to hear from you.”

Peter Burgess, Cabinet Member for Horsham Town said: “I am sure everyone is aware of Saint Catherine’s Hospice and the fantastic work they do. Of course, they always need funds to support them and the latest method has been to commission sculptures of hearts, put them in prominent places in local towns and later they will be auctioned off for the charity.

“It is very sad therefore, to see that in Horsham, two have already been damaged and will either need to be repaired or disposed of. This can affect the charity’s ability to help seriously ill members of our community and brings shame to Horsham’s good community standing."

Event project's Fundraiser for St Catherine's Hospice said: "The trail is helping St Catherine's raise money so they can help more people living with a terminal illness.

"At St Catherine’s, we can currently only care for one in three people with a terminal illness in our community. But by supporting our trail this summer you’ll be helping make sure we can be there for more local people."

If you witnessed the criminal damage or have any information to aid the investigation please report online call 101 quoting 47190117444.
