A former director of a Harleston charity shop has been jailed for six months after stealing more than £12,000 from the charitable organisation.

Jane Marsh, 55, of The Common, Harleston, had been charged with the theft of a credit balance to the value of £12,202.93 from the Bullock Fair Charity Shop between July 1 2012 and August 21 2015.

She was jailed following a trial at Norwich Crown Court.

The shop supports the East Anglian Air Ambulance, East Anglia's Children's Hospices and All Hallows Hospital at Ditchingham, near Bungay.

Sally Wilkinson, managing director of Bullock Fair Charity Shop, had said the charity shop has not been affected by the alleged theft and that it continued to make donations to good causes.
