The Jammy Piece café in the Eastgate Centre reported a collection box for Mikeysline had been stolen over the weekend.

A statement on the cafe's Facebook page said: "These guys do such a massive job and support so many people...it just breaks our heart that someone could do this to them."

The box was chained to the counter.

Mikeysline operates as a mental health helpline and also operates The Hive Project drop-in centre in Academy Street, Inverness.

The café believes the charity box was taken some time between 1.30pm on Friday and 10am yesterday morning.

They later posted that they had received information that it had been found complete with contents, though neither they nor the police were able to confirm this when contacted by the Inverness Courier this morning.
