Our little Mall in the heart of Stubbington Village was the victim of a burglary in April this year and many businesses suffered because of it.
Most of all, Jane Hug jewellers. Jane is a pillar of our community and has been established in The Mall for over 20 years and is loved by all the locals. This is the second time in 5 years that her beautiful jewellery shop has been the victim of a burglary and this time round it has taken it's toll on Jane more personally than anyone could ever imagine. The damaging costs and the loss of precious stock has to come out of Jane's own pocket. Which no small business owner would want and could put a lot of small businesses out of business if it happened to them!
I decided to set up this JustGiving page because Jane is the most kind hearted person I know. She lost a lot of precious stock and the vandalism of her gorgeous little shop was enough to make you cry. Luckily for us, customer repairs were safe but just the thought of this being stolen was enough for Jane to tell me, she would have sold her house to pay customers back! (her own words not mine) and because of this her business needs our support. I would like to try and raise some funds to help Jane recoup some of her losses and I hope the community of Stubbington would also like to support her.
In addition to this, Sue Ryder our lovely charity shop was also a victim of this burglary and the low life's that broke in stole their safe, with a substantial amount of money in, which was for CHARITY! So again if we can support them that would be amazing.
The rest of the shops in the Mall lost a days trade due to forensics being carried out and the police not letting the shops open. This had a massive effect on the small businesses. Insurances wont pay out unless they are actually broken into but the loss of a days trade is still damaging.
The landlords have agreed to put in more reinforcement on our doors and new locks have been fitted which is great. However, we would hope some of the money raised on here will go towards more security such as extra cctv and a better alarm system.
Every very penny counts, so please help all those small businesses that work very hard, each and every day, to provide goods and services to a great community village. A target of £2000 has been put up however, this will only cover a small amount of the losses so if we can beat this that would be amazing.
Thank you in advance for your support.
