VANDALS trashed a 101 Dalmations- themed scarecrow display and stole one of the dogs.
Linda Betchley was one of 14 Fingringhoe residents to recreate Disney scenes to raise money for St Andrew’s Church.
Yobs struck on Sunday night, trashing the Cruella de Vil figure, stealing one of the floral dalmations and driving into the rest of the display.
Mrs Betchley, of South Green Road, Fingringhoe, said: “It just shows the low mentality of people.
"There is simply no need for behaviour like this."
