The DEBRA charity shop at 3/3a Park Lane, Poynton  has stepped up security after a recent attempted break in.

DEBRA is the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) – a painful genetic skin blistering condition which, in the worst cases, can be fatal. 

The DEBRA charity shop suffered an attempted break-in on Monday 9 December.

Director of Retail, Chantelle Milne, explained: “A very kind supporter put £10 through the shop letter box, which unfortunately resulted in the perpetrators attempting to break the glass in an effort to reach the money. The attempted break in at the shop has cost the charity over £500 in repair fees.

“At DEBRA we rely on the income from our shops to help us fund vital research into Epidermolysis Bullosa, for which there is currently no cure.”

“We appreciate all donations of items from the local community but would urge supporters not to leave donations outside the shop out of hours.”

‘DEBRA relies on the generosity of the public to carry out its work, improving lives and giving hope through specialist nursing care, family support and vital research to find a cure’.
