Thieves Steal Shop's Charity Tin

Wednesday July 10 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A TATTOO shop owner who was raising money for the British Heart Foundation has had his collection tin stolen by callous thieves.

Andy Longden, who owns Arcadia with his wife Wendy, was due to take part in a skydive for the British Heart Foundation on July 13 - but now that's in jeopardy.

The thieves broke into a tattoo shop on Tuesday night and made off with a charity collection tin, containing around £200.

Also stealing Andy's valuable tattoo equipment, the tin's contents were donated by customers and the proceeds of a raffle the pair are doing.

"They got in through the upstairs window," said Wendy. "The machines are insured but the collection tin obviously was not.

"Although Andy will be without his equipment for a while, we're urging people to still come in and take part in the raffle competition so he can go ahead with his skydive."

The rotten scumbags if they are caught Andy should be able to tattoo THIEF in the middle of their foreheads.
