Incensed that a local charity shop has been broken into, donation box and a few items stolen.
How desperate are people these days, or are there no morals left at all with some people.
I know its not the worst happening in the news at the moment but so so angry.
Rant over.

That's awful. So sad for all those who work so hard to raise money for your charity.

Our local charity shop was broken into a few years ago. The outpouring of best wishes accompanied by offers of help and generous donations was astonishing. I just have to keep telling myself that the good far outweigh the bad in society.

Thieves are thieves, no one should expect them to show finer feelings in when they choose premises to break in to.

Most of them thieve to fund a drug habit, and are mainly looking for cash and I imagine that they think, for some reason, that Charity shops are more likely than other shops, to leave the petty cash tin lying around and accessible.

Drugs are often the explanation sad
