A 97-year-old woman from Nottinghamshire has spoken of her devastation after her life savings were stolen.
Maud Rodgers was one of four elderly people targeted by burglars on the evening of 4 May.
She returned from a night out to find her home had been ransacked and £15,000 and an engraved pendant were missing.
Det Con Jason Jenkins from Nottinghamshire Police asked anyone with information to come forward.
Mrs Rodgers said: "As soon as I opened my living room door I noticed my curtains had been closed.
"I never close them, so I knew somebody had been in the house."
'I've got nothing'
Mrs Rodgers' life savings of £15,000, which she was saving for her family, had gone.
""It took me 79 years to save that money," she said. "I was determined my children and grandchildren were going to have something from me.
"When I realised it had gone, I was devastated. I've got nothing."
This is the first fundraise I have attempted so please if you have any suggestions do let me know! I understand the figure looks high also but I was hoping even £1000 would be better than nothing!
