The Life charity shop in Blackpool is facing a repair bill running into hundreds of pounds after a break-in yesterday by thieves.
The shop located on Clifton Street, was broken into in the early hours of yesterday by thieves who smashed the glass door and made off with £200 which was in a safe. They caused considerable damage which will cost hundreds of pounds in order to make the shop safe again for staff and customers. Police are reviewing all CCTV of the area in the hope of catching whoever did this to the charity shop.
Life’s Blackpool Shop Manager Janine Feder said: “The income from this shop goes towards helping to support vulnerable women in crisis pregnancies and we are very disappointed that anyone would even think of damaging or stealing from our shop. The shop is temporarily closed today for repairs but will reopen tomorrow. We apologise for the inconvenience and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the local people for their on-going support of the charity. We look forward to welcoming our customers, old and new at the shop soon.”
