FOUR people accused of taking funds from charity appeared at Newport Crown Court yesterday and were bailed until they enter pleas on April 1 next year.

He and Nikki O’Connell, 35, both of Ridgeway Park Road, Newport, appeared alongside Clayton Richards, 37, of Ty Pwca Road, Pontnewydd, who founded the charity, and Gareth Williams, 34, of Briary Way, Brackla, Bridgend.
All four are charged with conspiracy to commit fraud between April 10, 2012 and October 4, 2013.
They were given unconditional bail until their plea and case management hearing next April.
