Eltham High Street charity shop targeted in burglary attempt

Two Eltham High Street shops were broken into last week including the Demelza hospice care for children charity shop.

Eltham Police state that in the early morning of 3rd October the “Demelza charity shop had its rear door forced open. Nothing was stolen as till was emptied before shop was closed ” and then at 5am a dry cleaners a “suspect smashed their way through a front window & stole cash till. Excellent CCTV covers the store.”

As the police state, who is low enough to rob a charity shop?

If you’d like to donate to the charity you can do so here.

If anyone has any information contact police on 101.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
