A charity is calling for donations after £500-worth of goods were stolen from their office.
Training equipment and bedding were taken on two different occasions from The Guide Dogs For The Blind Association - a charity which trains dogs to assist people that are blind or partially sighted.
Thieves broke into outside storage boxes in Stroud Wood Business Centre, Park Street, St Albans, on Saturday August 17, stealing 10 duvets that had been donated by Sainsbury’s.
The following evening between 7.30pm and 8am, the storage unit was taken, along with equipment used for obstacle training.
Community engagement officer for the organisation, Louise Jenkins, commented: “We were deeply saddened to find that on two occasions equipment for our guide dogs in training had been stolen.
