They say Christmas is the season of goodwill and that's definitely the case in one village in Wiltshire. The community has clubbed together to raise money for their neighbours left out of pocket after their Christmas savings fund totalling almost 30 thousand pounds went missing.
60 people are thought to have contributed to the thrift club which was being looked after by pub landlord Malcolm Levesconte at Shrewton, on Salisbury Plain. He hasn't been seen since boarding a cross-channel ferry at Portsmouth, bound for San Malo, last weekend.
An appeal set up just yesterday to help victims has raised a staggering £9,000 already.
