Thieves return a boy’s bike after his mother’s appeal on social media

Nine-year-old James Brewster, from County Armagh, Northern Ireland, was left devastated after his silver bike was stolen just days before the anniversary of his father’s death.
His mother Una put out an emotional appeal on Facebook for the bike, which was the last gift James received from his father, to be returned.
Una had put an emotional appeal on Facebook asking for the bike to be returned                                                                                                                              Imagine the terrific snowballing effect of all the appeals on social media.The bike was returned three days later to the delight of James and his mother.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 James told The Belfast Telegraph: ‘I went into the garden without knowing my mum had seen the bike. I actually looked at the bike and didn’t think it was really there.’    
The nine-year-old said he thought he was ‘dreaming’ when he saw the bike                                                                                                                                                                   Una wrote on Facebook: ‘An amazing thing happened today….a miracle in Pinebank!!!! I was leaving the house to do school run and someone had returned James’s bike.                                                                                                                      
‘What a beautiful ending to this story and one I had faith was going to happen, the reason being the incredible outpouring of concern and help from so many people to have it returned.’                                                                                                                                                                                                             ‘From all those friends and strangers who shared my post, those who searched for it, to all who offered to replace the bike…..you were unbelievable!!!
‘And lastly to whoever returned the bike, you have done an amazing thing!! An incredible thing!!!!…and made James one very happy boy. Thank you ….x’                                                                                                                                    Watch the video:
