  • CHARITY APPEALS FOR INFORMATION AFTER FUNERAL VEHICLE IS STOLEN

    The Muslim Burial Council of Leicestershire (MBCOL) has today appealed to the good people of Leicestershire following the theft of their funeral vehicle in the early hours of Tuesday 7th September 2010.

    MBCOL is a charitable organisation which facilitates funerals for members of the public. The charity is a not for profit organisation and the vehicle is provided to families for use during funerals at no cost.

    Suleman Nagdi, ambulance Chair of MBCOL said today, ed “It is a very sad day when a vehicle which is used to carry the deceased is stolen. I never would have thought this sort of thing could happen. We have lost a very important asset and have had to make last minute arrangements to try and support families who need a safe and purposeful vehicle to transport their deceased loved ones. I plead with the person(s) who did this to reflect on what they have done and to show a moral conscience. By taking this vehicle, find you are adding to the distress already suffered by families when they have lost a loved one”.

    MBCOL is appealing to the public to contact the police or their office on 0116 273 0141 if they spot a dark green Toyota Hi-Ace, registration number FP02 HNZ is seen or found. It is a panel van with blacked out side and rear windows. There are no markings on the vehicle.

    ENDS.
