Event banner stolen from seafront
9:00am Saturday 7th September 2013 in News
ORGANISERS have hit out at thieves for stealing a charity event banner from a seafront railing.
Sally Mays, events fundraising co-ordinator for the brain injury charity Headway, put up a large banner to advertise the Coastal Dogathon in October.
The event will see dogs and their owners take a charity stroll from Holland on Sea to Clacton and back before taking part in a fun dog show.
But just hours after putting the sign up at the Holland on Sea greensward it was missing.
Sally said: “We have put the banner on the railings there for the past 15 years or so, to advertise our Coastal Dogathon and Fun Dog Show on October 6.
“The next day my mother, who lives at Holland on Sea, called me to say that it had gone.
“I cannot believe that someone would take this banner, it is of no use to anyone but Headway Essex.”
