Mind­less de­struc­tion

Central Leader - - NEWS -

On my way home from my walk at 7.30am on a Sun­day morn­ing, I no­ticed a large box out­side the Sal­va­tion Army fur­ni­ture shop off Do­min­ion Rd. The top was open and I saw it was full of dolls. As a doll col­lec­tor my­self, I was in­ter­ested to have a look. I counted at least 20 good sized dolls plus some smaller ones. Some were dressed and there were other toys for dolls as well.

On the Mon­day morn­ing at the same time I no­ticed as I walked past that nearly all the dolls had been stolen and those left were mi­nus their heads which were miss­ing. Such mind­less de­struc­tion! Did the cul­prits give a thought to the en­joy­ment that some chil­dren would have from re­ceiv­ing one of th­ese dolls? If only the per­son who left the dolls had read the no­tice by the shop which asks for all out of hours do­na­tions to be left in Ewing­ton Rd, only two streets away, where they would be looked af­ter.
