Thieves steal Help for Heroes 80th birthday donations
Thieves have stolen more than £150 in donations from a Shropshire grandmother who was raising the cash for soldiers injured on the front line.Josie Vaughan was collecting the donations instead of presents during her 80th birthday bash in Telford when thieves stole the cash out of dozens of cards at the venue and stuffed the envelopes into a toilet cistern.
Mrs Vaughan, from Woodside in Telford, said she was distraught after making the shocking discovery on her birthday, when she decided to open the cards.
Mrs Vaughan said the bash, held at the Anstice Memorial Institute Club in Madeley on March 2, saw hundreds of pounds raised for the charity.
“I think whoever did this should be ashamed of themselves, it’s disgraceful,” she said.
Anyone with information about the theft can call Telford police on 0300 3333000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Surely this is proof that authorities no longer function effectively in the more troubled areas and contentious issues are off the radar.
While the political tick tock men continue to play ping pong with our daily lives I suggest they spare a thought for people like Mrs Josie Vaughan and other decent residents that are blighted by this kind of behaviour.
Telford and Wrekin Council announced a week-long “Clean Sweep” operation in the Brookside area of Telford that includes “a range of activities designed to tackle anti-social behaviour and reduce rubbish across the estate”.So why did they have to wait until the BNP showed up?
