Replenish Backwell's stolen Remembrance money

As sickening as this is, the money raised at our local Remembrance Service this Sunday at St Andrews Church in Backwell, North Somerset was stolen! 

Some mindless individual(s) broke into the church overnight and stole donations given by young and old across our community.  Clearly this is so wrong on so many levels, at least

1. Stealing money for a cause whereby people gave their lives to make a life better for us
2. Stealing from a church
3. Taking the hard earned cash / pension money / pocket money from each kind-hearted individual who donated.

We have no idea how much money was taken, but I'd like to think we can at least try and replenish some of these funds.  The Backwell community would be extremely appreciative if anyone local (or beyond), could chip in together help bring some good out of this bad situation.  Thank you.
