Stolen Camera Equipment

I'm a very keen amateur photographer in the field of Inline Speed Skating and find myself a victim of theft on the last day of Stage 1 of the European Cup 2019 held in Gijón, Spain 38151084_155407269084780_r.jpeg
My Canon EOS 7D Mark II plus Canon L series 100 400 telephoto Mark I lens was stolen in front of my nose as I turned around to help somebody, which post event, was clearly a decoy for this opportunistic act.

All my Sunday photos of this European Cup event were on the sd card. In the camera. Stolen. Lost now, gone forever .....

Both my boys are inline skaters, both have represented GB. My youngest son is part of Team Project Bont UK but without the camera I can't take photos and post online for the sponsors. Without the camera I can't shoot images for their Skating Club Roller Lagos. Without the camera I can't photograph any other athletes, many of whom use my images. 

Most of you know what I do, and you all have free access to my work. I'm asking you to help me now, so I can continue to provide you with what you have come to expect of me.

My insurance company will not cover the loss. The cost of a replacement camera and lens is approximately 1500.00€ 
Please note I'm also going to be contributing to donations received as I must pay a fee for each transaction plus a percentage on this platform! 

Thank you for reading. Please share with whoever you think might be willing to help me out.
