A woman has labelled a thief as “pathetic” after a charity money box was stolen from her farm.

Rose Adcroft was heartbroken to find the Cancer Research fundraising box from her roadside manure sale in Beccles was swiped over the festive season.

“I always leave it out there and it seems like somebody just came along on a scooter or a bike and just took it,” Mrs Adcroft said.

The mother is fundraising for Hannah’s Willberry Wonder Pony Charity - a organisation dedicated to a teenager who is fighting Osteosarcoma.

She said: “If you ever get bone cancer, and I hope you won’t, we will have raised enough to fund research and found a way to cure you from one of the most painful cancers.”

Despite the theft, the 55-year-old has had a surge of donations on her JustGiving page.

One supporter wrote to the page, “For you for your friendship and support and part way to replace the money that was stolen from your muck selling.”
