A CHARITY shop was burgled almost a year to the day since it was first targeted.

The Age UK charity shop, on High Street, Wombwell, was broken into on March 3 with burglars getting in through the roof.

A year ago they got in the same way, but only managed to steal 10p from a donations box.

Hugh Forde, managing director of retail at Age UK, said: "Thankfully no-one was injured, however the takings were stolen and there was damage to the shop and stock.

"It is a terrible shame when things like this happen, as Age UK shops rely on donations to help raise vital funds to support older people."

Police are investigating.
