A CHILDREN'S disability charity in Wrexham has been left devastated after brazen thieves broke into their premises.

Dynamic Wrexham say its buildings on Salisbury Road have been broken into, leaving them 'heartbroken'.

A host of items have been stolen over the course of a few nights, it is believed.

Posting on social media on Thursday (May 14), they said: "Today has been an incredibly tough day at Dynamic as sadly this afternoon we found out that Bradbury HQ and the outbuildings had been broken into - we are heartbroken.

"At times like this there are no words to describe the level of a person or people who would break into and steal from a charity for children and young people with disabilities.

"We would like to thank North Wales Police for their kindness and for the CSI team who came out and spent a long time collecting evidence.

"Also to the volunteers who have spent time securing our building and property - thank you.

"This post is not intended to encourage speculation on who this might have been, the police are investigating and we would not want to jeopardise any investigation or hopeful prosecution.

"This horrible situation today has taken our focus away from what we do best - but tomorrow is another day.

"We are Dynamic and you won't find us down for long."

After posting the incident on their Facebook page, an online fundraiser was set up to support the charity.

As of today (May 15), the JustGiving page has raised £1,677, having set an initial target of £1,000.

A charity spokesman said: "We are absolutely blown away by the kindness of everyone.

"Yesterday was such a tough day but our faith in humanity has been restored, thank you - diolch.

"We have received messages of love, care and support from all over the world.

"From our current families, young people and families who used to attend, our friends from so many voluntary, statutory and private organisations.

"Thank you all so much, we might not have replied to each of you individually just yet, but each message is greatly appreciated.

"We have also been offered treats for the staff and volunteer team, replacement items, volunteers to help clear up, repair work, the list is endless.

"We cannot thank you all enough.

"There has also been a fundraiser looking to raise £1,000 to help us get back on our feet - along with other fundraisers being offered, promised and started. Thank you all so, so much."

"We said yesterday, Dynamic would not be down for long and this just proves it, and this all thanks to all of your help, care and love."

They added: "We have had lots of people message asking what was taken, it is still too early to tell.

"We do need to stress this was not just one break-in, it happened over a few nights in our outbuildings and main Bradbury building.

"We do not want to give too many details away as sadly it could leave our building vulnerable again - it involves indoor and outdoor items.

"We do know that we need new mobility aids, internal and outdoor specialist disability play equipment have been taken along with full size garden equipment including a strimmer, Cobra lawnmower (but we have the Cobra front plate), a barbecue, a garden table and chairs.

"And that is just our first very brief assessment - we have not fully been able to tell just yet.

"Thank you all once again from the bottom of your hearts for your kindness."
