Comment on this story on the

A dementia-friendly minibus belonging to local charity Regenerate-Rise was stolen from Darfur Street in Putney this weekend.

It is a grey Ford Transit with Regenerate-RISE's branding and the registration number is YT14 UYU.

The specially adapted vehicle was the newest mini-bus owned by the organisation and was set to provide the opportunity for older people to meet up again after thirteen months of isolation.

The minibus was seen in Balham and Southfields on Saturday (17 April).

If it is not recovered it could take sometime to source a new vehicle due to delays related to the insurance claim and the need for it to be specially adapted.

If anyone sees the bus, call 101 and let the police know the location.
