A BARNSLEY man who allegedly abused his position as treasurer at Barnsley Animal Rescue Centre to gain more than £230,000 will appear at Sheffield Crown Court later this month.

Kevin Proctor, 61, of Hall Close in Worsbrough Village, appeared at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday charged with fraud by abuse of position.

It’s alleged that between August 2016 and August 2022, Proctor gained a total of £230,875.36 whilst treasurer at the charity.

It’s stated that he ‘dishonestly abused the position’ to make financial gain, but Proctor did not enter a plea.

He will appear at Sheffield Crown Court on July 26 and was granted unconditional bail.
