BOTTLES of drink that were to be part of a raffle in aid of a Huntingdon cancer treatment centre have been stolen in a burglary.
The break-in happened at The Woodlands Centre - a day centre used for chemotherapy and cancer-related treatments at Hinchingbrooke Hospital - between 5pm on Friday (August 14) and 6am on Monday August 17).
The intruders stole bottles of Bacardi and champagne, after forcing open a locked draw, and a bottle of wine and a make-up set, which were on a table in a foyer area.
They were intended as prizes in a raffle and had been donated by people who are receiving treatment at the centre.

PC Andy Hilbert, who is investigating, said: "This is a shameful crime in which a burglar or burglars have broken into a care centre and stolen what they could find.
"I am appealing for anyone with information about this burglary to come forward, particularly if they saw someone acting suspiciously on the hospital site over the weekend."
