Money was also stolen during the incident.

The person on CCTV appears to be wearing dark overalls, with a white top and a hood covering their face.

A member of staff told The Lincolnite : “We got broken into Saturday night and the scumbag stole the charity boxes and the float.

“I know there was another snatch and grab of charity boxes a few weeks ago at one of the shops in Burton Waters. It seems like there is a little bit of a trend.”

The Lincolnite understands there was a second incident at Burton Waters, but further details about this from police were not available at the time of publication.
