Mystery woman saves day


A GOOD Samaritan has come to the rescue after students performing at a community event in Fishponds Park had their bags, cash and mobile phones stolen.

Youngsters from Bristol Metropolitan Academy in Fishponds took to the stage at the Make Sunday Special free community afternoon event. 

But while the boys and girls were showcasing their recent sell-out show The Lion King, their bags were snatched from a tent next to the stage.

The three female victims were left distraught and the rest of the cast were in shock that such a thing had happened during what was a fantastic  community  fun day.

But a generous donation of £300 from a mystery woman who has asked to remain anonymous has helped restore the teenagers’ faith in humanity.
