A Good Samaritan donated £250 to replace a stolen bicycle and child’s seat which was used to take a two-year-old disabled boy to play sessions.

Alexander Bailey, of York Road, Corby, used the bike to take his grandson Mackenzie, who has goldenhar syndrome, on trips.

After reading about the theft in the Corby Telegraph a woman, who has asked to remain anonymous, contacted Mr Bailey and offered to help.

He said: “She said she had had some luck with Premium Bonds and handed me £250. It was so kind and we are very grateful.”

Halfords in Phoenix Parkway, Corby, provided Mr Bailey with a bicycle costing £299.99 for £200 and a child seat worth £89.99 for £50, as well as a 12-month maintenance deal.

Store manager Paul McInally said: “We were disgusted to hear about the theft and were happy to help.”
