Following a break in to their charity shop in Glenburn, St. Vincent’s Hospice are appealing to local trade workers to repair their locks and shutters ahead of Christmas.
A provider of specialist palliative care for people with life limiting conditions, along with support for their families and children, the St. Vincent’s Charity shops throughout Renfrewshire provide a vital income for the Hospice.
Kate Lennon, Chief Executive of St. Vincent’s Hospice, said: “We are shocked and saddened that someone would do this just days before Christmas. Not only have we lost the contents of our cash register and safe, but the break in has caused extensive damage to our store, the security shutters and locks on the doors.
“All proceeds from our shops go directly towards allowing us to continue to offer the care and support we do for people throughout the community. We are asking for any local businesses or trade workers to please help us repair the damage caused to our shop and get it back up and running over the festive season.”
This is the busiest time of year for the shops, meaning the damage will cause a significant loss of income, along with the cost of repairs. If you, or someone you know, is able to help St. Vincent’s Hospice, please get in touch by calling 01505 705635.
