HUNDREDS of pounds worth of jewellery was stolen in a raid on an Evesham charity shop.

Police are keen to speak to two men after the Vale Wildlife Charity Shop was broken into between 6.20pm on Monday (August 18) and 9.30am Tuesday (August 19).

Thieves broke a window and stole a plain gold necklace worth £400 and a plain gold bracelet worth £150 from one of the shop’s displays.

George Brotherton, manager of the shop said: “People have been really supportive, it’s a horrible thing to steal from a charity.”

West Mercia Police would like to speak to two men who were seen looking at the jewellery earlier in the day before heading off in the direction of Lloyds Bank.

Both are being described as white and in their late teens to early 20’s.

One man had bleached blond hair, has a tattoo on his neck and was wearing an Adidas top and jeans.

The second man was shorter, with brown hair and was wearing a white shirt and grey trousers.

Anyone with any information should call West Mercia Police on 101 with incident number 0310S of August 19.
