Staff at a Sheffield vets have praised an animal lover for donating £300 to replace cash stolen when a thief took a charity box.
The woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, walked into Broomhill Veterinary Practice to hand over a cheque for £300 - the same amount of money in the charity box stolen from the vets last week.
She had heard about the theft, which is under police investigation, and wanted to replace the missing money which had been raised by staff and clients.
The money is now to be sent to the Cinnamon Trust – a national charity which helps people in the latter years of life to keep their beloved pets at home.
Shannagh Leadbetter, manager of the vets’ practice on Crookes Road, said: “It’s absolutely brilliant that somebody would do something as kind as this.”
