Burglary won’t stop kids’ disco

ORGANISERS of a children’s disco were left devastated when they found items they had bought for the event had been stolen.

After shopping for the crisps, sweets and drinks for the annual Friends of Caistor Primary School, chairman Diane Dowman stored the items temporarily in her home garage.

But the following morning, Tuesday October 11, Diane and her husband Richard found the garage had been broken in to and everything was gone.

“We thought we would be able to claim on the insurance, but it doesn’t cover perishables,” said Diane.

So now, having already raised the money to buy the stock in the first place, kind-hearted parents are donating crisps, sweets and lemonade so the disco can go ahead.

“It is fantastic how people are rallying round,” said Diane.

“People are being so generous and one parent even donated £100 towards the costs of the disco.”

The Dowman’s garage was one of five broken into overnight on October 10/11.
