A Norwood spokesman said:
It is very distressing that these attacks have been made on a charity that supports some of the most vulnerable members of the community. Our shops provide vital income to help us support those who need our help. People who work in our shops are largely volunteers and give their time for free. The reason they do this is to put something good back into the community as a whole. It is extremely unfair and unjust for them or the charity to be subject to these attacks.

- The last poster of which appeared on 14th August.
