Bur­glars tar­get Guides twice

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa Girl Guides are ap­palled by the ac­tions of peo­ple who broke into their club head­quar­ters on Clyde St.

Girl Guide Pip­pin leader Cath MacPherson is heartbroken about the break-in.

‘‘We are a non profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, so ev­ery­thing we have, we have to fund raise for. It is our young girls that suf­fer when peo­ple steal from us. This is a real blow.’’

This is the sec­ond bur­glary in five weeks for the guides.

Mrs MacPherson said the of­fend­ers broke in through a win­dow. ‘‘ We just want to make a plea to those that stole from us: Please re­turn our gear,’’ Mrs MacPherson said.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glary please con­tact the Toko­roa Po­lice on 885 0100.
