Thieves broke into a Weston Hospicecare shop last week and stole a laptop that is used for the essential day to day running of the shop. Its not the first time that thieves have targeted the Hospice shop located in Baker Street in Weston-super-Mare.



I just cannot believe that people would target a charity shop of all places says Peter Boyer of Weston Hospicecare. Only a couple of weeks ago someone stole the diesel from our Hospice vehicle and now this, its just so upsetting. The staff will have to do without the laptop now which is not going to be easy for them. Purchases that we make are carefully considered and budgeted for, the charity cannot afford to replace things that have been stolen like this.



Weston Hospicecare relies on the shops and the generosity of the general public to help them to raise 80% of the 3million a year running costs each year which enables it to provide free palliative care to the local people of Weston-super-Mare and the surrounding areas of Somerset. The shops are well supported by the local community and many people have been upset to hear that the shop has been subject to this break in.



If you are able to help Weston Hospicecare to acquire a new laptop at all please call Peter on 01934 642264 any help and support would be gratefully received.
