One does start to lose one's faith in humanity.

We've had a local story that made the national papers surrounding a pub landlord who absconded with£29,000 from the Christmas Thrift Club.

A fund has been set up to compensate those who have lost out and that sum has nearly been matched with donations including one for £10,000.

Good can come out of bad. It's just a shame that the bad is there in the first place.

Some people are heartless. I hope they find the thieves. When children are sick and in the hospital, even the smallest and cheapest of toys can bring joy. Box of Crayons and a coloring book, toy cars, and other little toys can bring a smile to a hospitalized children.
