After reading the recent news of the misery left behind by the break-in at Upton Rugby Club this week, local funeral directors Jackson’s have donated an eight-unit CCTV system to prevent such an event happening again. Apprentice electrician, Matt Dunwell, saw his work tools stolen in the raid overnight between Saturday and Sunday, plus extensive damage was created inside the club which saw the bar flooded with two barrels worth of beer and 25-30 bottles of spirits were also stolen.
Yesterday Mark Campion, Operations Director at Upton’s branch of Jackson Family Funeral Directors visited Matt at the club and presented him the CCTV system. Mark explains, “The local community is so shocked by this burglary and I want people to feel safe in our beautiful little town of Upton. Matt is such an inspirational young man, so when we heard of the terrible upset left behind after the raid, we all wanted to help to ensure this never happens again.” He adds. “Donating the CCTV system is just our way of helping in a small way, to put things right in a terrible situation.”
Jackson Family Funeral Directors, who have a branch in Upton High Street, are keen supporters of the local community with charity events and are proud sponsors of ‘Upton in Bloom’.
