The incident happened at the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) shop in Chapel Street, Diss when a side window at the premises, facing Chapel Street car park, was smashed.

The raid happened between 5pm on Monday and 7.30am on Tuesday when the burglars stole the DVDs as well as a tray of custom brooches, a white heart pendant and a collection tin containing cash from the Quidenham hospice shop.

Sarah Throssell, EACH retail area manager, said: “We’re devastated that our Diss shop has been broken into.

“As a charity we rely on voluntary donations for the majority of our income, including shop revenue, so an incident like this means less funds to support local life-threatened children, young people and their families.

“A number of items were taken including brooches and necklaces, DVDs and an EACH collection box.

“Security at the shop is being increased with the installation of an intruder alarm.”
