Police have appealed for help in recovering a minibus stolen from a Birmingham charity in Kingstanding.
The Mercedes minibus was undergoing work so it could be used as a music and career workshop for young members of Urban Devotion Birmingham when it was stolen from College Road.
The Perry Common based charity, which had planned to share the bus with other local charity groups, is appealing for the public to help try to locate the vehicle.
Andy Winmill, Education and Training Coordinator at Urban Devotion Birmingham, said: "The value of the bus to us far outweighs its commercial value. We had planned to use the bus to support our drop in sessions and music workshops for people from the local community.
"We are desperate to see this vehicle recovered and would urge anyone with any information about it to contact the police."
The bus is described as a yellow Mercedes 609D minibus. It has a faded blue logo on either side. Even if the vehicle has been re-sprayed this logo could still show through.
The vehicle also has a vent on the passenger's side for a generator and a valve on the driver's side.
Officers believe members of the public will remember seeing the vehicle due to its distinctive appearance.
Acting Sergeant Stewart Lewis, from Kingstanding police station, said; "The rarity of this bus means that there are very few similar vehicles on the road and we would ask anyone who believes they may have seen it to contact us."
Anyone with information is asked to contact north Birmingham police on 0345 113 5000. Alternatively, the independent charity Crimestoppers can be called anonymously on 0800 555 111.
