Plea to help find lost cam­era with pre­cious char­ity night pic­tures on

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A MAN is ap­peal­ing for help find­ing his lost cam­era con­tain­ing 500 plus pho­tos from a char­ity event after he left it in a taxi.

Toby Parkes left Revo­lu­tion bar in Bea­cons­field in the early hours of Mon­day, De­cem­ber 22 morn­ing after the Alexan­der Jan­sons Foun­da­tion’s fundrais­ing event.

Alexan­der Jan­sons died from my­ocardi­tis in July 2013, he was 18 years old. The char­ity was set up in his name to re­search the causes, preven­tion and cures for the dis­ease.

Toby is a friend of Alexan­der’s brother and had of­fered to take pho­tos of the event, which raised £4,000, to help the char­ity save money.

He had re­cently got a new cam­era, a Nikon D5200, for his birth­day.

He caught a Hack­ney car­riages taxi from the venue at about 3.10am and helped his sis­ter from the cab, leav­ing the cam­era be­hind on the front seat.

Now he is try­ing to track down the driver or any wit­nesses who saw where the cam­era was left or picked it up.

Mr Parkes said: “I said I’d help out at the event, as I’m friends with Alexan­der’s brother. It’s a char­ity and it saved them money. Now the pho­tos are on the cam­era, and I feel ter­ri­ble. It’s not about the cam­era, I need the pho­tos.

“I just want to let who­ever has it know we need it for the char­ity pho­tos, some­one for­ward.”

Mr Parkes has checked Revo­lu­tion’s CCTV and not got any more clues. He has re­ported the cam­era as miss­ing as is hop­ing peo­ple can come for­ward to help him find the cam­era.

Pa­tri­cia Dean, from the foun­da­tion, said: “It’s not the cam­era so much as all the photographs taken of this great event which have now gone.

“We raised £4,000 on the night so we did have a great re­sult but un­for­tu­nately there are no photographs to show for it.”
