The Air Ambulance coffee shop in Daventry has been closed today (Thursday) after a break-in.
Staff arrived at the Landing Pad in High Street at 7.30am to discover the doors had been kicked open.
The burglars had then raided stock in the kitchen, before breaking into the cafe’s safe, office and staff lockers.
Staff estimate the cost of the stolen cash and stock, the loses from trading and the extra security measures they will have to take will cost the charity more than the cost of one potentially lifesaving air ambulance call out.
The burglary occurred between 5.30pm on Wednesday June 11 and 7.30am on Thursday June 12.
Anyone with information or who witnessed anything suspicious overnight at the shop should call police on 101.
The Landing Pad cafe is likely to remain closed all of Thursday, June 12. The Air Ambulance Furniture Shop was also closed on Thursday morning, but its manager said it could reopen in afternoon.
Both shops will definitely reopen on Friday June 13.
