A CHARITY is already more than halfway towards replacing items stolen after a break-in.
Sustainability and skills charity Bicester Green, based in The Garth, off Launton Road, was broken into, its workshop was vandalised and items stolen, just weeks before Christmas.
Its trustees launched a £2,000 Crowdfunding appeal to pay to repair the damage, buy a new till and install CCTV cameras.
So far donations have reached £1,260, including a £500 donation from Phil, who said: “Best of luck with the project”.
Bicester Green share skills, teach unemployed people new skills, and volunteers repair or convert second-hand items into usable products saving it from landfill.
Lewis Knight said: “We’re overwhelmed with the support we have received from the people of Oxfordshire and also a number of businesses who have also helped out.
“A special thanks must go to the mysterious donor, Phil. Can we get #ThanksPhil trending?
“This support has allowed us to re-open our doors and carry on with the great work that we do.
“We would love to reach our goal, so any further help anyone can provide is gratefully received.”
Police have appealed for witnesses, anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting 43170373679.
