Little Miracles also posted on Facebook: “It sickens me that our Ramsey branch appears to have been targeted and broken into, items stolen and a real mess left. I realise times are hard for everyone but it’s disgusting pure and simple and it breaks my heart that anyone would target disabled children.”

Little Miracles is a parent led support group for families with children that have additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions.

The charity is based at The Spinney in Hartwell Way, Ravensthorpe, but has groups across the region.

Money is now being raised to buy new equipment for the group.

Anyone with information on the theft should call police on 101.
