Anthony McAllister, owner of TJ Taxis in Byker, has spoken of his reasons as to why he decided to donate a new bike to leukaemia patient Declan Munro:
On Friday 15th August, ITV Tyne Tees reported a bike belonging to a leukaemia patient had been stolen in Newcastle (Read more: click here).
Declan Munro's bike was stolen on Wednesday 6th August between 8.30pm and 9.30pm when he went into a shop at Allendale Road in Byker.
The 14-year-old, who has spent the last two years fighting leukaemia and is currently undergoing chemotherapy, was said to be devastated. The bike was donated by charity and worth hundreds of pounds.
As Declan's family shared the police appeal via social media, the story came to the attention of Anthony McAllister who owns a taxi service in Byker and lives nearby.
He decided to dig deep to help the schoolboy and bought him a new Cube bike at the cost of £550.
Despite his old bike still not being found, Declan is said to be ecstatic with his new bike.
