Charity Shops under attack
2019 saw a number of charity shops broken into across the town. From Oakengates to Shifnal, to Wellington these stores, set up to help those in need, ransacked for a bit of pocket change in donation tins.
The latest shop to fall victim is the Oxfam charity shop in Wellington, not only losing out on anything taken, but shouldering the cost of damage caused or at least the insurance excess.
Why is it that the thieves are targeting these shops? What can be done?
