The Fairy Bricks’s Headquarters was broken into over the weekend into and a huge chunk of their inventory was stolen.
In case you are not familiar with Fairy Bricks, they are a UK based charity that distributes LEGO sets to kids in hospitals and they have been doing this for much longer than I’ve been blogging about LEGO.
Needless to say that I’m upset that there are people out there who feel the need to obtain LEGO sets in this desperate manner.
While the sets can be replaced, the van which Fairy Bricks used to deliver the sets has also been stolen. If anyone has any information on this do drop Fairy Bricks a message.
“We are saddened to report that we have suffered a devastating robbery at Fairy HQ over the weekend. We still have to assess the full extent of the stock taken. Our van has also been stolen. West Yorkshire Police are fully aware and are working to apprehend the criminals who have clearly targeted us.”
This isn’t the first time that Fairy Bricks has been robbed. Back in 2017, a group of robbers cut through the side of the Fairy Bricks van and stole about 2,000 sets from them.
