Outrage as charity box taken from Potters Bar mechanics
A “DISGUISTING” theft saw �60 stolen from a Potters Bar businessman’s charity box.
High Street tradesman John Godfrey has told the Potters Bar Edition of his outrage after the raid, in which two women took a Potters Bar Rotary Club collection tin from the front desk of Mr Godfrey’s mechanic business.
Mr Godfrey, who owns J Godfrey Accident Repair Centre, said: “The money raised in that box is from little jobs I do in the garage for people, when I tell them to just chuck some cash in the pot rather than giving it to me.
“So it’s obviously very disappointing; I think it’s disgusting.”
The theft of the box, containing about �60, happened at around 3pm on Thursday, December 2.

“It’s completely disgraceful.”
