Theives steal £500 from Veteran in Fareham Centre

Acts of Kindness Community (Solent) are a registered charity 1180072  helping those in need in the community. Ordinarily we don't share Go fund me pages - however when it comes to a veteran
whom has been through such an ordeal! WE are right behind him, As a COMMUNITY! 

Thieves have left an 87-year-old RAF veteran ‘astonished’ and ‘angry’ after taking £500 from him in a broad daylight mugging in Fareham town centre. 
Brian Colley had just withdrawn his monthly housekeeping budget from the Natwest on West Street when the gang of thieves struck at 1pm on Monday.
The former aircraft engineer, who served from 1947 to 1961 in bases around the world, described a man ‘tackling’ him from behind, with a woman approaching him to say the pair needed help getting to hospital because she was pregnant.

Brian, who has difficulty walking due to osteoarthritis, said he ‘couldn’t move’ when the man grabbed him by the shoulders and three other men surrounded them.

The incident left Brian, who lives alone, ‘shocked’ and ‘angry’ that he was robbed in broad daylight.

Lets show Brian that we are behind him! Lets get his money back for him so he needn't struggle.

 Any excess pennies will go to Service Dogs UK who help veterans with PTSD and also Alabare Veterans Home who help Veterans who have been homeless through hardship and illness.
