Bur­glar steals from chil­dren

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Dear bur­glar/s,

First off, we here at South Waikato News are dev­as­tated that you were not happy enough with tak­ing our gad­gets, you also took gifts that our com­mu­nity do­nated to those less for­tu­nate.

If you are not aware, let us make you aware – we here at SWN have a place for our com­mu­nity to come and place gifts un­der the tree so that those chil­dren who would nor­mally miss out on Christ­mas don’t.

Be­cause of your ac­tions there will be some chil­dren who will wake up to no gifts, some chil­dren who would of re­mem­bered this year as be­ing a ter­ri­ble one, would of at least re­mem­bered one day ‘‘Christ­mas’’ as a day that they were not for­got­ten off Santa Claus’s list.

We hope for the sake of those that gave so gen­er­ously to the com­mu­nity Christ­mas Ap­peal that you would do the hon­or­able thing and drop them off some­where, maybe out­side our door when no one is around – or you could do the right thing and turn your­self in.

We want to wish you a Merry Christ­mas and hope that you or your fam­ily do not suf­fer the mis­for­tune of hav­ing all your wishes dashed by a heart­less thief as those chil­dren who de­served those gifts will have to en­dure.

If you have any in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glary at South Waikato News over the weekend please phone Toko­roa Po­lice on 885 0100. Kind re­gards, The South Waikato News Team
