A brooch given to mark 37 years of voluntary service at a children’s hospital ward has been stolen in a burglary.

Thieves broke into a property in Howard Avenue, Aylesbury sometime between 10am on Saturday December 28 and 11am on New Year’s Day.

Among the items stolen was the brooch belonging to an 84-year-old woman given to mark nearly four decades volunteering at Stoke Mandeville Hospital children’s ward.

Investigating officer Det Con Gemma Howe from Aylesbury police station said: “The distinctive silver-coloured flower design brooch was of great sentimental value and had been a gift after decades of volunteer work at the hospital.

“I’d like to hear from anyone who has information about the brooch or who saw anything in Howard Avenue which may assist the investigation.”

Anyone with information about the incident should contact Det Con Gemma Howe on 101.
