Letchworth charity shop plea after ‘sentimental’ bracelet donated by accident

STAFF at a charity shop are appealing for the public’s help to recover a bracelet of “great sentimental value” after it was donated by accident.

A woman from Letchworth GC handed in a Swarovski silver and crystal bracelet to The Salvation Army’s charity shop in the town two weeks ago.

Realising her error last Thursday, the woman returned to the store in Leys Avenue only to find out it had been sold for a few pounds three or four days after it had been donated.

“The bracelet is of great sentimental value and we would like to try to reunite it with its owner,” said Major Barrie Sampson from the Letchworth GC branch of The Salvation Army.

“The lady recognised some of the items that were in our display area at the time but not her bracelet. Unfortunately it was not identified as being of value and has been sold for just a couple of pounds.

“She only found out that she’d given it to us after her daughter had asked to borrow it. We’re keen to relocate it to the owner as soon as possible.”

If you are the owner of the bracelet or purchased it contact Mr Sampson on 01462 683247 or email barrie.sampson@salvationarmy.org.uk
