A local charity shop is appealing for new items following a break-in which caused over £1,000 worth of damage to the shop.

Thieves ransacked the Chest, Heart and Stroke shop in Davidsons Mains on Monday night.

Yesterday the asked for people to donate items for sale to help them recover the costs of the damage and theft following the incident.

Shop staff at the damaged door yesterday.

The post read “Our Davidson’s Mains store was sadly broken into last night, resulting in over £1000 loss due to extensive damage to the back door and theft.

“Following the break-in we would be truly thankful for any donations of good quality clothes, shoes and accessories which would help us make back the money lost.

“Whilst it’s been really disappointing to see the store targeted, taking away funds which should be used on vital support for people affected by chest, heart or stroke illness in Scotland, we are grateful of the support we always receive from the local community.”

If you have any items for them you can drop them into the shop at  8 Main Street.
