MORE Isle of Wight charities have been hit by criminals.
Windows of the YMCA Winchester House building in Shanklin were smashed and thieves escaped with important office equipment, including two laptops yesterday (Thursday).
The windows of the Children's Bereavement Service office and the Isle of Wight Young Carers Project office, both based at Winchester House, were smashed in the early hours of the morning.
The incidents have been reported to police.
Kelly Burke, targeted services manager for YMCA Isle of Wight, said: "I am shocked that people can behave in such an uncharitable way. Personal belongings, phone chargers, two laptops and some petty cash has been taken.
"Two services that work closely with young people and their families have been badly hit. The loss of two laptops is already having an effect on the services because they are both small teams.
"Everything in and around the building is branded with the YMCA logo, so people must know they are charities."
The break-ins are the latest in a spate of recent crimes against charities on the Isle of Wight.
Mencap, Independent Arts, Osel Enterprises have all suffered break-ins and vandalism recently.
