Church hit by thieves


A robbery at the Presbyterian Church in Mullumbimby late on Christmas Eve will deny aid to stuggling and disadvantaged people of Nepal.

The minister Reverend Keith Boulden said thieves smashed an office door and stole money collected during the Christmas Eve service.

"The collection had all been allocated to a charity organization called TEAR," he said, "and the money raised this year is being sent to Nepal.

"As a result of the theft, people who were to receive a great boost from the generous people of Mullumbimby will receive much less.

"It is really disappointing that amongst all the joy of celebrating Christmas and the birth of our Saviour some would deprive those much less fortunate than us."

Anyone with information about the theft should contact Mullumbimby police.
