DOGS TRUST SHOREHAM CHARITY SHOP BREAK-IN
17 July 2012
A Dogs Trust charity shop in Shoreham-by-Sea was broken into on Sunday 15th July 2012 and thieves made off with donated watches and jewellery and also stole money from the safe.
Local police are now appealing for witnesses to come forward with any information. Members of public are urged to contact the police on 101 and quote the crime reference number 25816072012.
The charity shop on The High Street, Shoreham-by-Sea, has recently had an extensive refurbishment and was reopened to the public the day before the break-in, adding to the blow.
Nicole McCallum, supporter relations officer at Dogs Trust Shoreham comments:
“Dogs Trust staff and volunteers have been left extremely shocked by the break-in. It is a particularly unforgiving act as money raised from charity shop sales helps us to care for hundreds of dogs in need at our rehoming centre in Shoreham.”
Dogs Trust staff are ever-grateful for the community support and generous donations and are also urgently appealing for charity shop volunteers at this difficult time. The charity shop can be visited at 12 The High Street, Shoreham-By-Sea, BN43 5DA. For further information call Dogs Trust Shoreham on 01273 452 576.
