Money stolen from Tyrone boy’s cancer fund left in Omagh church porch

Almost £1,000 which had been stolen following a charity event for a three-year-old child with cancer is thought to have been left in a church in Omagh.

Oscar Knox was diagnosed with neuroblastoma - a rare cancer which mainly affects children - in November.

On Friday night, almost 2,000 pounds was raised in a charity event in Omagh for the Oscar Knox appeal, but £1,000 of that was later stolen in a break-in at the home of one of the organisers in Omagh.

Now, it appears to be that money has been left in the porch of the Sacred Heart Church on Sunday marked for the Oscar Knox appeal.

West Tyrone MLA Ross Hussey says it's not a coincidence that the break in occured so soon after the event...........
