Foodbank volunteers have warned people to be cautious following a break-in at their North Ayrshire headquarters.

Thieves are believed to have entered the organisation's Glasgow Street base on the night of Tuesday, July 26 or the early morning of Wednesday, July 27.

Staff believe the intruders may have taken fleeces with the charity's name on them.

The food bank team is now worried that those responsible for the theft may be going around posing as legitimate volunteers from the charity, which is based in the Ardrossan Church of the Nazarene.

In a social media plea, a spokesperson for the food bank said: "If they (those responsible for the break-in) ask for anything saying it is for the Foodbank, do not give them anything.

"Legitimate foodbank volunteers have an ID card. Always ask to see the ID card.

"If you have any doubts give us a ring on 07411 113126."

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Around 9.55 am on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, police were called following a report of a break-in overnight to a premises on Glasgow Street, Ardrossan.

"There are no details with regard to anything being stolen at this time and enquiries are continuing.”
