Cash was stolen from a hospice charity shop in Letchworth town centre during an overnight burglary over the weekend.
Police were called to the Garden House Hospice Care shop in Eastcheap just after 8.30am on Sunday to reports of the overnight burglary.
Hospice CEO Sue Plummer said: "Criminal acts like this are appalling and have a knock-on effect on the hospice. It's not just about the money that was stolen, but the cost of the repair work needed to install more security to prevent another act like this from taking place.
