Stephen Wood, a vol­un­teer at HSDIN, said: “It’s get­ting too much now. I fell ab­so­lutely gut­ted. It’s one step for­ward and 100 steps back.

“[The lat­est thief] came in through the side win­dow where the door is and stole money and a jar of cof­fee out of the kitchen.

“He also had a good rum­mage through every­thing we have got.”

Lan­cashire Po­lice said no ar­rests have been made and any­one with in­for­ma­tion should call 101 quot­ing log num­ber 0297 of Novem­ber 26.
