Allen is a self-employed gardener, living in Bingham. His transit van was nicked from his home on Hill Drive, Bingham on Tuesday 22nd December. I spoke to him and his wife last night and they are, understandably, gutted. The police reported the van as stolen 24 hours after the event so it’s probably changed plates and halfway across the country by now.
His van is a white high-top 2010 Ford Transit, 2.2 bought in 2017, he’s had the van for 3 years and some low life has gone and nicked.
My goal is a modest £750 which should be a good contribution to getting him back on the road.
The insurance will no doubt cover some of the losses but a Go Fund me will get him back on the road quicker so that he can earn a living before losing his valuable customers. It’s taken him years to build his customer base so let’s do this, let’s get him back on the road and make his Christmas.
The account is in my name, Nigel Bingham, 100% of the funds will be transferred to Allen on the 2nd January 2021 and he will put all this money towards his new van.
Every donation, no matter how small (or big), will be hugely appreciated by Allen, his family and myself. Please, please help get him back on the road.
