The former treasurer of Hilltop Primary School’s Parent, Teacher Association has appeared in court accused of stealing more than £42,000 from funds.
Kevin Carter, 50, appeared before magistrates in Medway yesterday after being charged with theft by employee.

It is alleged he stole the cash between January 2011 and January 2013.
