Burglars stole £1,000 in cash set aside for a Burns Night supper when they broke into the Shoreham Centre on Friday night.
The centre’s second break-in in less than a week has left staff angry but determined to carry on.
The Burns Night supper is still due to go ahead on Saturday despite the setback.
Groups that use the centre have pledged their support and are planning fundraising events to reimburse the charity.
For a full report into the break-in and the community’s response, see the Herald, out on Thursday, January 23.
