Thieves Steal Gifts Meant For Foster Kids Who ‘may Not Have Had A Christmas’

The hospital charity which helps critically ill young patients and their families has spoken of its “devastation” after gifts it intended to give to children this Christmas were stolen.

Around 150 presents, festive decorations and equipment, totalling £3,000, were swiped from a storage room at St Mary’s Hospital used by COSMIC (Children of St Mary’s Intensive Care).

The break-in happened between October 3 and November 18, and has badly hampered the charity’s preparation for Christmas events.

An urgent crowdfunding appeal has now been launched to help raise the money to bring some joy to sick kids who will spend the festive season at the Paddington hospital.

Each year the charity organises a Children’s Christmas party where gifts are given to patients and their families. Its Carols by Candlelight Concert preparations have also been rocked as loot taken includes all the LED lights required.
