A 1988 Vaux­hall Nova used by cab driv­ers to raise £6500 for char­ity, which was stolen last month, has been re­cov­ered.

The car com­plete with stick­ers and ad­ver­tise­ments dis­play­ing its char­ity run was taken from River­side Taxis, Man­ningtree, Es­sex on 25 Jan­uary, but was re­cov­ered in nearby Hol­land-on-Sea two days later.

Found fully in­tact, the car had re­ceived some dam­age to the locks where the thieves broke in and items were stolen from in­side.

Owner Ash­ley Martin and driv­ers Rick John­ston and Ash­ley Don­nelly drove more than 2000 miles in the car to raise £6500 for care home Acorn Vil­lage and Chil­dren with Can­cer UK last sum­mer.

As a re­sult of an on­line ap­peal, a mem­ber of the pub­lic spot­ted the Nova in Hol­land-on-Sea and alerted the taxi firm to its where­abouts

The Em­ploy­ees of River­side Taxis thanked ev­ery­one for their help in shar­ing the mes­sage and for their help in find­ing the car. Lost and found – the char­ity fundrais­ing 1988 Nova.
