A sum of money has been stolen from the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Memorial Room at Tundergarth, which honours the 270 lives lost in the Lockerbie bombing on 21 December, 1988.
The theft happened at 8:45 AM on Friday 25th August, with security cameras recording the incident.
Donations are collected on behalf of Tundergarth Kirks Trust, who alongside the Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Legacy Foundation, work to keep Tundergarth Church open, as well as raise funds to build a Memorial Museum, on this iconic site. Police Scotland have been informed and will begin investigating the incident.
A spokesperson for the Trust said:
“It beggars belief that somebody would steal donation money from a place that honours all 270 victims of the worst terrorist attack to have taken place on British soil. The Tundergarth Kirks Trust and Pan Am 103 Lockerbie Legacy Foundation work tirelessly to ensure the church remains open, as well as continually investing in the development of the Victims Memorial Room and the future Memorial Museum, in the 1575 Kirk ruin site. We hope this person will come forward and return the money.”
