Police have released this CCTV image of a man they would like to talk to following the theft of a collection box from inside a funeral directors, as reported in last week's Advertiser.

The charity tin was swiped from Rowland Brothers in Central Parade on December 27.

The box contained £85 donated in memory of lost loved ones, for the company's annual Christmas collection.

Funeral arranger Angelia Jordan said it had been stolen while she was discussing funeral arrangements with a family.

The money was due to be shared between the Woodside Bereavement Service, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, and the estate's Brenda Kirby Cancer Centre.

Mrs Kirby is the former New Addington councillor in whose honour the centre was established.

She said last week: "Nobody is hugely well off around here but it is a really strong community and what they have they share.

"I just hope whoever took it was desperate, but nothing excuses interrupting a bereaved family.

"If anyone knows anything, tell us. Tell anybody. I am sure it will get through to the right people – they can do it anonymously if they want."
