Local charity comes to the rescue

A local charity has stepped in to replace funds stolen from the family centre’s office at Castlebrae Community High School this week.

Two individuals broke in to the office at the school sometime during the night on Wednesday 14th December 2016 and stole a safe with £120 of cash stored in it as well as a video camera and digital camera.

The £120 cash was to be used for the nursery children’s Christmas party and due to the theft it looked like the party might have had to be cancelled.

Kevin Finlay of Kids In The Street spoke to a local Craigmillar charity who then agreed to donate £150 to the family centre so that the Christmas party can go ahead.

Kevin told us: “How anyone could steal from our local high school is unbelievably hard to understand. After finding out that the kids might not have their party due to the theft I approached a local charity and explained the situation. Thankfully they were able to help out and save the day. It shows true community spirit in action!”

Police are investigating the theft. If you have any information regarding the incident please contact Police Scotland on 101 or you can report it anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

  1. How horrible – but thankfully there are good people who are willing to reimburse Castlebrae Community High School. Merry Christmas to them.
