Thieves make off with hampers

Police are looking for the thieves who almost stole Christmas at the Dayrells Road Gospel Hall Assembly.

T’was the week before Christmas and all through Monday night the members of the church worked like elves cheerfully preparing several hampers and care packages to be shared out.

But on Tuesday night heartless intruders broke into the church and made off with the more than 20 hampers, seven care packages and other food items stored in a barrel for another charity. It was the fourth time in two years that the sanctuary had been hit by thieves.

Elder Felton Ince said members had donated the foodstuff for hampers to go to the indigent, while the care packages were going to the elderly who are in nursing homes.
