The general manager of Branching Out Charity Shop in Littleport has been left angry and ashamed after items of ‘household rubbish’ were, once again, dumped on the shop’s doorstep overnight.
Sue Duggan said: “Shame on the person who left this outside the Branching Out charity shop.
“Whoever you are I want you to know how cross I am with your behaviour and why.
“You are devaluing the work of our brilliant volunteers, staff and the people with learning disabilities we support.
“You are making them feel like the work they are doing is not appreciated or valued.

“Donate your household rubbish to the bin men and not a charity shop.”
It comes just over a month after the charity shop was broken into overnight, leaving staff and residents ‘appalled’ and ‘horrified’.

This isn’t the first time household rubbish has been dumped on the shop’s doorstep, either.
In April, Susan Wiggans said: “When things are dumped on the doorstep most of the good stuff gets stolen and bags are rifled through.
“If it rains the goods become soaked. It blocks the door and means sorting out donations takes twice as long for our volunteers.
“If people call in advance we can arrange a time to be at the shop so if people can’t make it during normal opening hours they can drop off at a more convenient time for them.”
