Black Cat Café robbed for the second time in one month

The Black Cat Café in Clapton, London, has been targeted by burglars for a second time in three weeks. The owner found a window at the café had been smashed yesterday (Thursday).

At the first break-in, on 15 October, over £200 was stolen and hundreds of pounds worth of damage was caused. A crowdfunding page was set up to help to replace the stolen equipment and fix the damage. Over £1,000 was raised in a few hours to cover the costs.

The damage caused by the second break-in was able to be rectified quickly thanks to the support given following a few good weeks of trading.

The Black Cat released a statement on its Facebook page: "We are saddened and disheartened that this has happened for second time in one month - especially the night before we had arrangements to get shutters put on our little café. All we can do is protect the café from this happening again and keep on keeping on!"
