Money Stolen and Organ Smashed in Church

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: February 8, 2022

Unknown vandals broke into St. Mary's Church in Higham Ferres where they stole money from a large glass jar, scattered the prayer candles, and smashed the organ alter. A crowbar found in a hedge the next day was thought to be used for the ransacking. The act showed a complete disregard for the religious objects in the church.

Church administrator Ria Jefferies said: "It is disturbing to think something like this can happen to our beautiful church while we sleep at night. Thankfully we have a strong community who have rallied round to help today and get us operational again."
