Pictured Above: John, Joint Corps Director for Nexus Drum & Bugle Corps, opens the back of the lorry for the first time since it was stolen from Bedford last Thursday and later recovered by Cambridgeshire Police on Monday.
The Nexus Truck was found by Cambridgeshire Police on Monday 31st of October after being stolen the previous Thursday from a locked compound in Bedford, containing over £50,000 worth of new frontline pit equipment.
Yesterday John & Andy, Corps Directors for Nexus D&BC, visited the truck and had a chance to view the instruments in the back of the truck for the first time to check for damage.
We are glad to report that the instruments mainly unscathed, save for a few knocks and bumps from the incident. However, the same cannot be said for the truck, which has sustained damage.
We shall, therefore, continue fundraising for the group as part of our drive for the 2012 season. Anyone who wishes to donate may do so by texting BAND11 £2 to 70070, or by visiting our Fundraising Page.
We would like to thank everyone who has been involved in publicising the loss of our truck, both online and offline, and especially to ITV News, The Biggleswade Advertiser and the Bigglesade Chronicle for their generous coverage of the event, which eventually lead to the recovery of the truck through sighting reports.
We would also like to thank the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Police Forces for their work in recovering the truck
