Mercedes charity box is stolen
A CHARITY box raising money in memory of a Crowlas woman who died of cervical cancer has been stolen.
The Mercedes Curnow Foundation fundraising tin was taken from Herbies fish and chip shop in Penzance on Monday evening.
Around £30 was believed to have been in the box when it was stolen from the shop counter.
"I was absolutely gutted when I realised it had gone," said Steve Herbert, who runs the business with wife Nicola.
