'Shocked and sickened' that's how staff at Julia's House children's hospice felt when they discovered heartless thieves had stolen Christmas lights from their front garden.

A white van with two men inside pulled up outside the Hospice in Corfe Mullen on Tuesday (9th December) at 9pm before the passenger got out and stole the lights.

Emma Shepherd, Lead Nurse at the hospice, said: "We are all so shocked that someone could steal from a children's hospice.  

"Many of our children have sensory challenges or difficulties with their sight, but they can all see and enjoy lights."

The lights were donated by another charity, Hannah's Trees, a charity set up in memory of Hannah Owen who died from cancer in 2009. Her favourite time of year was Christmas and the charity aims to help all children enjoy Christmas.

People have been offering replacement lights to the hospice, who say they now have more than enough to replace the ones that have been stolen.
