Letter: Keep an eye out for fake £20 notes

The Sue Ryder shop in Driffield where two fake 20 notes were used.

I am the new manager of the Sue Ryder Store in Driffield. At our shop we have had two fake £20 notes spent in the store and in turn this has lost the charity £40 out of it’s daily takings.

Unfortunately it was my day off and I popped in to see if there was anything I could do to help and my assistant manager asked me to do the banking run.

When the cashier informed me that two of the notes were in fact fakes I just felt sick to my stomach. Even the cashier was dismayed at such a horrible act.

Who would do such a thing to a store trying to raise funds for such a good cause? I also think that other businesses in the East Riding area may benefit from knowing that this maybe something that someone will try to do in one of their shops.
