Mum overwhelmed by kindness of strangers after her disabled son's tricycle was stolen

Video report by ITV Anglia's Liz Summers.

A mum-of-three from Cambridge says she has been overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers after her disabled son's tricycle was stolen.

Tania Khan used the three-wheeler to get around the city with eight-year-old Qeis who has Down's syndrome. But one morning the family woke to find it had been taken from outside their home.

"Qeis was very proud of his Kangaroo, it was red in colour, it was bright and noticeable from a distance so the minute he came out of school he would run and he would say... oh my Kangaroo, my Kangaroo... we could go along with the rest of the family to trips to the park, to trips into town and basically Qeis and I could be a part of the rest of the family and enjoy the outdoors."

The tricycle was a lifeline for Tania and Qeis, Tania doesn't drive and due to a car crash she cannot balance on a bike. But one morning they found a broken padlock and chain on the floor - the £2,000 trike had gone.

"I think my first reaction was... sadness, I was just really upset because it was such an important, integral part of our lives - I was shocked for a second I didn't know what to think or how to replace it or what the next best option would be."

– Tania Khan

Tania set up a crowd funding page to raise money for a new trike. She has been overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers and in just five weeks the community has raised more than £400.

"I am really overwhelmed and overjoyed by the support of the community and it means the world to me that this effort is coming through for my child who I will have to fight for a place in this world for the rest of his life."
