Holbeach air ambulance fundraiser's appeal after tools believed to be stolen from Wilder's Garth




A Holbeach fundraiser is appealing for help in tracking down a bag of tools that disappeared from the Wilder’s Garth area.

Les Ward, who has been fundraising for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance for many years, has reported the incident to the police and believes they were stolen between Thursday, June 27, and Saturday, June 29.

Les, who is in his 70s, was recently a victim of theft in April, when intruders climbed over the fence of his home in Wilder’s Garth. They went through bric-a-brac items he collects for table top sales in aid of the air ambulance.

This time, he says that a bag of tools including a battery drill, screwdrivers and wire cutters, was taken.

Les was previously the victim of bizarre thefts in April when thieves took items he uses to sell at table top events for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance

“I had them when I went to my neighbour’s to fix a doorbell on Thursday,” he said. “When I went back to get the bag at home on Saturday it had gone. I would ask people to look out for tools that they think could be stolen.”

Lincolnshire Police confirmed they received a report at 8.59am on July 1 'about the theft of a bag of tools from a property on Wilder’s Garth, Holbeach.’
