Staff at the Sue Ryder charity shop in Holbeach desperately want to speak to a man who they think accidentally donated a treasured ring.

The man dropped off a large ‘Wilko’ carrier bag of goods to sell in the shop on High Street on Tuesday of last week.

Inside the bag, staff found an envelope containing a ring which they believe the owner hadn’t meant to give away.

Manager Sharon Harris said: “We do get a lot of people donating jewellery for which we are very grateful but the writing on the envelope, and the style of the ring, suggests that this has a lot of sentimental value for someone and that it was put in the bag accidentally. We’d love to reunite it with its owner.”

Staff and volunteers placed a sign in the shop window, asking the donor to return, and put the word out around the town.

But as yet they have drawn a blank.

Sharon said: “The gentleman wasn’t someone we recognised but we’re very much hoping that through spreading the word in the media he will come back.”
