Video Of Nan Receiving Donations After Handbag Stolen In Bromley

A has been left overwhelmed after the people of Penge and Beckenham rallied together after her handbag and precious family photos were snatched.

Pamela , 85, was shopping Bromley High Street when her possessions, including her pension money, were nicked from her trolley.

Her granddaughter, Kerry Lou, 39, explained how her was left "devastated" by the callous theft. However, Pamela’s "faith in humanity has been restored" after an online fundraiser raised almost £1,200 for her.

The original target was just £200 and the money will now be used to replace her bag, pension money and to contribute towards extra house security. Since the theft, Pamela has been piling stuff by her front door to feel safer. A heartwarming video captured the moment the pension money was returned to Pamela, who has since spoken on BBC Radio.
