A DONCASTER charity shop is appealing for witnesses to come forward after heartless thieves stole £1,000 of stock.

The British Heart Foundation Shop at The Colonnades was also damaged during the incident on Sunday.

The Doncaster Shop is encouraging people to come forward with information on the break in and is hoping the local community will support the Shop in its time of need.

The Shop is urgently appealing to local residents to search through their wardrobes and scour their homes for any unwanted, good quality clothing, handbags, shoes, books, DVDs, CDs and bric-a-brac – all of which will help the Shop refill its sleeves and continue its fight against heart disease - the UK’s biggest killer.

Michael Parkin, BHF Area Manager for Doncaster says: “We absolutely rely on the support of the Doncaster community to keep us running and without their vital donations we risk reducing the care and support available to heart patients across the country.

“If each household were willing to spend just half an hour having a clear out and donating to the Doncaster Shop it would make a big difference.”
