Her dream shattered

LETTER

My darling daughter’s dream was shattered yesterday. As she swam with her friends at the Olympic Pool, her brand new iPhone was stolen during the two minutes she took her eyes off her bag by the pool. Nothing else in the bag was flogged, just the phone.

She bought the phone on Saturday, the first day of the school holidays. For four years getting that phone has been her dream and it has taken that long to get the money together, only for some punk(s) to destroy that sense of achievement and reward in minutes.

The kicker is the phone is of no use to anyone other than my daughter. So they will ditch it when they discover they can’t get in to use it.

If anyone in your family was at the Olympic Pool on Wednesday, October 10 and has come home with a brand new gold-coloured iPhone 6 in a black case, please have the heart to drop it off at the police station and say you found it on the side of the road. The screensaver is a photo of my daughter and her bestie when they were four years old.
