Aylesbury charity shop broken into

A charity shop has been broken into in Aylesbury - and as a result, lots of stock thrown away.

That's because it was covered in broken glass from the front door of the shop on Walton Court.

Florence Nightingale Hospice say they've been overwhelmed by the messages of support, after the incident on Sunday morning.

The cost of the damage is unknown as yet but as well as having to replace the front door and put in additional security measures at a cost to the Charity, the charity have had to dispose of lots of stock for safety reasons. 

FNHC would like to thank the police for their work on this incident.

They say they have been overwhelmed by messages of support and outrage from their supporters.

Dennise Brown, Shop Manager, was on the scene on Sunday morning and was horrified and saddened to see the devastation.

"I was so sad to see the state of the shop, and to see my volunteers in tears because of the damage to our lovely shop. It's also such a shame that we have had to throw away donations because of the broken glass.

"It might have inconvenienced us for a few hours, but we will not be beaten by this. Thank you for all the messages of support". 

Lily Caswell, Head of Retail, said:

"It's just so sad. The staff and volunteers are devastated, but understandably angry about what's happened. They all put so much hard work into our shop, only to see it damaged for very little gain.

"Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who have worked so hard to get the shop back up and running so quickly."
