Items stolen in aid of Project Children
The items included a rucksack containing two digital cameras and a laptop containing vital information for the meeting. Brian Heading, the QUB Students' Union representative for the programme confirmed that the "car was parked just outside queens" in the Union good's yard. He said that there was "a rucksack containing two digital cameras and a laptop containing information for tomorrows induction." Interviews for the scheme have been carried out over the last fews days and those successful candidates are to attend the an induction meeting tomorrow. Mr Heading said "its going to be very difficult to give students the right information" if the items are not returned.
Project Children is a scheme linking Northern Ireland and America in partnership with Queen's University. It was setup in 1975 to show "Protestant and Catholic kids that they have nothing to fear from each other and much to gain"; it involved sending children from across the Northern Ireland divide to New York for the summer. Several years ago the programme was expanded offering University students summer internships on America's Capital Hill.
