Wolverhampton-based charity Compton Care has today shared news that its flagship city centre shop has been vandalised.
The Retail Plus Superstore, located on Snow Hill, was targeted by vandals in the late hours of 10th October who stole parts from its water piping system, causing severe flooding in store. As a result, the charity is closing the shop until further notice whilst it concentrates on necessary repairs.
Rachel Overfield, Compton Care’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “An act of vandalism such as this has a huge impact. Not only does the shop raise much needed funds so we can deliver our vital care, but it is also where we host support sessions for people living with incurable conditions, as well as bereavement support for the community. These sessions will sadly have to be postponed until we are able to open our doors again.
“The local community has always been a huge support to us, and we hope to welcome you back in no time. We’ll be keeping our supporters up to date via our social media channels.”
Compton’s network of shops located across the charity’s catchment area raise in excess of £900,000 each year to help local people living with incurable conditions. To find your nearest shop, please click here or call 0300 323 0250.
