STOLEN NOVA RETURNED
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.
