Recouping stolen charity money from Frontline fishing event

A Leicester branch of a recruitment agency has already managed to recoup the money it raised for a children’s charity following a burglary.

On Wednesday night (3 July), the Leicester branch of Frontline Recruitment was broken into, with £400 raised from a fishing event for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People stolen.

David Essam, operations director at Frontline Recruitment Group, told Recruiter while the thieves did not get away with any of the firm’s computers, as staff take laptops and iPads home, they left the office in a mess, emptying drawers, pushing items off desks and emptied charity buckets clearly labelled for the charity.

Essam added the firm was just about to count the money raised and take it to the charity but upon discovery of the robbery a member of staff hit upon the idea of setting up a Just Giving Page, which has smashed the original target, raising £1,300 as of early this morning.

While the original money is unlikely to ever be recovered, Frontline, along with the three other business in the building hit by the burglars, are now installing shutters.

Any readers wishing to add their donation to the Rainbows Hospice charity can do so here.
