Laura Horton, who works at the store, said the damage has ‘cost the charity dearly’.

She said: “We are heartbroken that we can only display half of our lovely Remembrance Day window to show our appreciation.”

The window has been secured until it can be properly fixed, and the charity is open as usual.

The damage comes after the store was forced to close for more than three years after a suspected arson attack in 2017.
