Theft of Christmas presents

We're very sorry to report that over 370 Christmas presents have been stolen from GCR. The presents were taken from a coach at Quorn & Woodhouse station.

The presents were intended for children between the age of 3 and 10, and all were wrapped and carried stickers showing the various age ranges.

These presents were left in stock from 2016 and were about to be donated to charity, including the Childrens Hospital at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

This theft will not affect our forthcoming Santa trains.

If anyone has any information on this incident, please contact Leicestershire Police on 101. The incident number is 161 from 26/10/17.
