A man accused of collecting charity money while pretending to be representing Help for Heroes is to face trial in the New Year.

David Santini (53) denied two charges of fraud when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court for a plea and case management hearing.

It is alleged Santini carried out the first fraud between June 4 and 7, 2014.

The second fraud is alleged to have occurred between July 2 and October 1 last year.

Santini, of North Drove, Quadring, also pleaded not guilty to a third charge of theft.

It is alleged Santini stole money belonging to Patricia Taylor between October 9, 2014 and February 17 this year.

Judge John Pini QC adjourned the case for trial and granted Santini unconditional bail until his next court appearance.

Judge Pini told Santini: “I am going to adjourn your case for trial. I can’t give you a date at the moment.

“It will be some time in the New Year.”
