    Story

    On Tuesday 15th November, 2 thieves approached an 81 year old man in Bluewater car park whilst he was waiting for his wife and tricked him into getting out of his vehicle and then proceeded to steal his car which was full of Christmas gifts that the couple had just purchased. Not only were the gifts stolen but so was their brand new car (the first they had purchased in 20 years!) Let's spread some Christmas cheer and try and raise some money to replace their presents and hopefully a little extra to treat themselves after going through this ordeal. I will be passing on any donations to Kent Police to forward to the couple. Even 50p could help - thank you in advance and imagine how much happiness this could bring to this couple! Additionally, if you have any information regarding this incident then please contact Kent Police on 101. Please see below for links regarding the incident.

      I'm so angry about this despicable crime. I hope they catch the culprits and they spend Christmas behind bars. I hope the couple are ok and that this appeal will help restore their faith in humanity
