Following your article in the Wimbledon Guardian on 15th June 2017, 'Tears over prizes theft', about prizes being stolen from The Royal British Legions fundraising tombola at Mitcham Carnival, we wanted to let you know about the amazing generosity shown to us by the local community.

The students, parents and staff at Liberty School were so touched by the news that they did a school gate collection to raise money for The Royal British Legion in Mitcham and they collected £103.40 at the school gates.

This has got to be community at its best. Thank you to everyone who donated.
