For the second time in 11 months, Dr Kershaw’s van was stolen as volunteers collected boxes for a home collection
The van was stolen from outside Morrisons Supermarket, Chadderton today at around 1pm (11.09.19)
The Hospice van was stolen as volunteers were collecting cardboard boxes from Morrisons to collect donations from a house. The van keys were not stolen.
Last year the van was stolen from the Hospice grounds one evening in October and was recovered the next day after a social media appeal.
There were several hundreds of pounds’ worth of damage to the van which was funded by donations from our community including Tesco, good Samaritan, Paul Jackson, and 3-year-old Evalyn-Grace’s pocket money.
Rebecca Bentham, Income Development Manager, said: “We are shocked and saddened by the news that our van has been stolen again. In October last year we had our van stolen from the Hospice grounds.
“We rely heavily on the kindness of donations from our supporters. To have to pay for repairs or even a replacement van is a huge expense to the Hospice’
It’s devastating but we hope that, with the support of our local community, we will soon be reunited with the vehicle.”
