A thief has caused heartbreak for a Canning Town charity working with disabled youngsters – by making off with a specialist trike.
The tricycle, which costs more than £1,500, was stolen from Ambition, Aspire, Achieve’s base at the Terence Brown Arc in Hermit Road Park.
“It is a bit of a blow to us, and completely unexpected, ” said founder Kevin Jenkins.
“We are hoping that this was an opportunist theft and the person who took it will have a conscience and return it.”
The bike, described as about eight to nine feet long with a basket on the back, was taken between 2pm and 3pm on Monday.
It is “extensively” used by disabled youngsters and “will take some time to replace”, added Kevin.
Forest Gate police are investigating.
