Student with cerebal palsy calls for return of his only means of transportation

Daily Echo: Robin Allen, whose trike was stolen as he was giving a presentation at university. Robin Allen, whose trike was stolen as he was giving a presentation at university.

It was one of the ways he felt able to live an independent life.

But now thieves have stolen Robin Allen’s mobility lifeline.

Despite having cerebral palsy, the 22-year-old student has been determined not to let the condition slow him down. Robin was regularly seen on his specially adapted trike which he used to get to and from lectures along with using it for shopping and other errands.

Now he says he has been left stranded after thieves stole the £650 trike while he was giving a presentation to course tutors.

Robin, whose condition makes it difficult for him to balance, said the theft has left him without a valuable lifeline.

He said: “They just could not know what it was they were stealing. I don’t see how it would be of any use to anyone else and it couldn’t be ridden by an able-bodied person easily. It really was my way of getting about, my independence has been taken away.”

Robin, who is in his third year of a sports journalism degree at Southampton Solent University, added: “I had just done my presentation, which hadn’t gone very well, and I had this feeling that something was wrong. When I got to where I had left the trike locked there was another one in its place and just my lock left there.”

Hampshire police confirmed they are looking into the theft and had been studying CCTV footage of the area around Guildhall Square from where the bike was stolen between 11.55am and 3pm on January 29.

Robin said: “I would ask whoever took it to please return it to a police station or somewhere I could get it back. It really was the only way I used to get about so I am having to get taxis everywhere as a result.”

Anyone with any information about the theft is asked to contact PC Samantha O’Hanlon from the Southampton Central Safer Neighbourhoods Team on 101.

Disgusting. Hope the thieves get caught and dealt with properly, but seeing the recent actions of the courts leads me to believe they won't.

Article states £650. So we need 65 like minded readers. I'm in too.

Is there no way you could conjure up a reason to pin the blame on the motoring groups which you seem to hold responsible for every other problem?

There are countless ways you could be helping others. Every day someone suffers something that you could help with. It just doesn't make the papers. All of a sudden, the Echo report on something and you turn into some samaritan, providing someone else does all the heavy lifting? Give me a break. Do you really want to help out, or do you just want to click a couple of buttons and donate a token tenner, so you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done?

Not in your view, but that is only because most of the time you're making stupid biassed comments to support cyclists, whether they are in the right or not. I try to stick to common sense posts.

You're arguing for the sake of arguing when there's no argument there. Somebody suggests donating money to help somebody in need & that isn't good enough because he's not helping all those in need that he doesn't know about? What a miserable little person you must be.

Is there no way you could conjure up a reason to pin the blame on the motoring groups which you seem to hold responsible for every other problem?
NIce to see valid input into stories such as this.

Can you, Geoff and Al stop having a threeway and do other things with your lives please?
If I am the Al you referred to then you have just shown your ignorance big time. I recently donated a mobility scooter to a needy recipient and spend most of my spare time helping others less fortunate than I
Well, to be fair Al, unless you're making a big deal of publicising these altruistic acts on these pages, his ignorance is understandable :)

Good on you though for your help.
No I don't brag about what I do, I am just an ordinary bloke who's had a good life and am able to help others. Helps pass the time.

If the Echo get involved and set up a Pay Pal account and a covering story I'm sure we could raise the money and show that there are some good people in Soton.
There are countless ways you could be helping others. Every day someone suffers something that you could help with. It just doesn't make the papers. All of a sudden, the Echo report on something and you turn into some samaritan, providing someone else does all the heavy lifting? Give me a break. Do you really want to help out, or do you just want to click a couple of buttons and donate a token tenner, so you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done?
Yes just click a button and donate a tenner, that's right like i do for a lot of appeals. Does that make me a bad person?
No not at all. Bragging about it to show everyone else how altruistic you are doesn't do you many favours, though.

Lets be fair, Al doesn't portray himself as the most charitable and giving old geezer in Soton does he?!
Not in your view, but that is only because most of the time you're making stupid biassed comments to support cyclists, whether they are in the right or not. I try to stick to common sense posts.
Oh man that one made me laugh!!!!!

Explain how my comments supporting cyclists are biased when they are based on factual statistics??? Nobody in favour of drivers over cyclists has been able to prove this yet, doubt you will either!

Common Sense! HAH! Man that's a good one!
Bye Bye, I don't argue with fools.
Not arguing old man, just asking you to explain how my comments supporting cyclists are biased when they are based on factual statistics.

Yet again, you prove my point. Pro-driving, anti-cyclist people won't even try to explain it. Because it's not possible.
