Grantham Town Academy sets up fund-raiser after kit is stolen
Grantham Town Academy has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to replace equipment that was taken in a suspected burglary.
Louis Bland, Town Under 18s manager, set up the page and has raised £855 from just 11 donors in the space of around three hours.
The appeal on the GoFundMe page said: "Unfortunately, we’ve had a robbery and all our balls, cones and mannequins have been taken. Any help will be appreciated to replace these items."
A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: "Incident 272 of April 16 is a report that a container on the grounds of the Meres Leisure Centre has been broken into. Football equipment was taken.
"We believe this happened at around 3pm. Any witnesses can call us on 101."
No arrests have been made and the police are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.
