Bags of clothes intended for Clothes Aid have been stolen from one or more doorsteps on the Gunhild Estate.
This type of crime has been known in Cambridgeshire before and is particularly nasty as it is stealing not only from the people kind enough to donate their goods, but from the beneficiaries of the charities for whom Clothes Aid collects, mostly ill children.
If you are leaving things out for charity collections, make sure you leave the bag out at the time stated by the charity to stop unauthorized people getting there first, and if you notice anything suspicious, telephone the police on 358966.
