Online fund-raiser launched to support Bury St Edmunds Mind charity shop after break-in




An online fund-raiser has been launched to support a Bury St Edmunds charity shop following a break-in.

A stockroom was ransacked and items were stolen during the incident at the Mind shop, on Cornhill, between 5.30pm on Wednesday, February 5 and 8.30am on Thursday, February 6.

The shop appealed for donations of bric-a-brac and clothes to replace items which were damaged and stolen.

Following the break-in, Lorna May Lynch, of Thurston, has set up a Go Fund Me appeal to support the shop.

Mrs Lynch, 43, who works for a charity, said: "I thought it would be nice.

"I was shocked - people shouldn't steal from other people anyway let alone a charity shop.

"It's a charity. What do they need from a charity shop?

"I can't wrap my head around it."
