The Holy Trinity Church in Stapleton Hall Road, Stroud Green, was broken into last night – with thieves damaging cupboards used to store food for the food bank based in the church hall.

But Father Patrick Henderson at the church said the burglary wouldn’t affect the food bank’s operations, or church this Sunday.

He told this newspaper: “Last night burglars broke into the church hall, it’s hard to see if anything was taken, but there was nothing of value there. “They forced open the cupboards where we store the food for the food bank, but they were obviously looking for money, and didn’t find any.”

“It shouldn’t affect anything this weekend, the food bank will run as normal.”

The independent food bank takes donations on Sundays between 1.30 and 3.30, or food can be left at the Londis on Ferme Park Road.
