SHAKESPEARE Hospice bosses say they are ‘saddened’ after burglars targeted one of their charity shops.
The hospice provides care for those with life-limiting illnesses and needs around £2.5million a year to keep running. Around a third of its income is generated through eight charity shops.
But its furniture store in Moreton in Marsh was targeted by thieves on Sunday (October 28).
Hospice chief executive Angie Arnold says the losses and damage was set to cost around £1,000.
She said: “This amount could pay for 24 hours of our Hospice at Home service or would provide a week of freshly prepared meals for our patients in the day hospice.
“It is distressing for all involved in the hospice to hear of this criminal act on one of our premises. Incidents like these are disheartening to all who help us.”
