Break in at the 1in12Tagged as: bastards free_spaces

In the early hours of this morning (Tuesday 11th May 2010), there was a break in at the 1in12 club, Bradford in which windows were smashed, equipment broken and a sizeable amount of petty cash stolen. A large amount of the money taken was that which had been raised by the jukebox and football table as a donation from the club for Tia Greyhound Rescue, Hebden Bridge.
Getting into the building by smashing the door to the adjecant fire escape, the thieves went systematically through the club, smashing windows and anything which looked as though it may contain money. Although they had forced their way into the cellar, no alcohol was taken which indicates that this was done by someone concerned with easy cash only.
All of the unbanked membership monies from the club, the staff wages and all donations towards the urgent roof repairs were taken. The bar and gig floors are strewn with debris from the break in.
As volunteers begin the clean up of the broken glass and secure the building, a call out is being made for anyone who can get to Bradford this saturday (15th May) to come along to the workday that has been planned in order to assist with getting the club back on its feet again.
