A CHARITY box to raise funds for the Friends of Danetre Hospital has been stolen from the Daventry Express offices.

The box, which was estimated to have between £30 and £40 in it, was snatched from the Gusher’s reception area on Friday.

The seceretary for the Friends of Danetre Hospital Arthur Pritchett said: “I am disappointed at how low some people can stoop. All they are doing is destroying the opportunities people like us provide.

“Every penny that the people of Daventry donate to our organisation goes back to help provide support for the staff at the hospital. The funds we have raised has helped us give new facilities and equipment.”

Police have now urged anyone with information about the theft to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
