Have your say

AN ANGLING club has donated money to a hospice charity after one of its stores was robbed.

The Fountain Lake Angling Club, which meets in The Marina, Whale Island Way, Portsmouth, have donated £270 to the Naomi House charity shop in High Street, Cosham.

It follows a break-in at the store last month where £270 in cash was stolen, as well as a laptop and charity scratchcards.

Previously law firm Irwin Mitchell also donated £270 to the hospice to cover the loss from the burglary.

The hospice has now expressed its gratitude.

Head of fundraising Paul Morgan said: ‘We would very much like to thank all those who generously made donations to help cover the losses we incurred when the Cosham shop was broken in to.

‘It’s heartwarming when something positive happens to counterbalance the upset and concern we all felt when our Cosham shop was broken in to.

‘We send our grateful thanks to all those who helped.

‘In particular we would like to thank Fountain Lake Angling club and Irwin Mitchell.’
