Christmas cheer was in short supply for MACS cancer charity volunteers in Huércal Overa this week after thieves broke into the charity shop stealing cash and damaging the door.
The break in was discovered last Monday morning, December 14, when volunteers arrived to open up, according to MACS president Elaine Kay Brown.
Other shops in the same street, Carretera Estación, across the road from the bus station, were also targeted and the police were called.
Around €50 was taken from the till, along with the Christmas raffle proceeds, and the door was damaged causing around €300 loss to the charity.
Speaking to CA News Mrs Brown said: “It is very sad that this has happened. I can only imagine the person that did it was in more need than we are.”
