David Kamson from Manchester, UK, was sadly a v!ctim of a su-spected rac!st at*ack which saw his food truck up in fla-mes, leaving him without a business.
David shared his heartbre-aking story on Instagram where he posted before and after pictures of his truck dem*nstrating the dev*stating results the f!re had on his business.
Along with the series of photos shared on Wednesday, September 23, David wrote:
This morning I woke up late at about 10 am and I went into the post office where the cashier was telling me oh my God what happened to your trailer, I said nothing is wrong with it it’s fine .. the council loves it and I have just fixed it back and bought back tools in it …
So I went to check on the £3000 trailer with £2200 worth of equipment Gone in as-hes with some things missing … which means it was r*bbed before bu*nt.
This Act of H*te should not be allowed in Moston. This is ha*eful and sad … All the kids that gets chicken from me , all the street homel-ess and be-ggars I give food to Most are not bla-ck , I have no color bla-ck or wh-ite.David added that he sees himself as a ‘community man’ and wishes to be treated like one.
Following the da*age to his trailer, a good Samaritan set up a GoFundMe in the hopes of raising £6,000 for David to replace it. Now, just 48 hours on, £78,933 has been raised for him which has come from over 7,500 donations at the time of writing. David has since shared a video on GoFundMe thanking everyone for their generosity.
David’s story has gained a lot of coverage in the past couple of days, including from the attention of many British celebrities. Lover Island 2019 winner Amber Gill wrote on the picture of David’s bu*nt down trailer, ‘I’m so sorry.Your bounce-back will be great I can feel it’.
Harry Potter actor Afs-han Az-ad commented, ‘You have the whole community and nations support!! May you be back and running with bigger and better premises! God will get those who tried to kno-ck you down, don’t you worry!’ David’s most recent post on Instagram was that of a Union Jack flag with the caption, ‘God Save Our Great Nation !! We re United Kingdom and Together We Unite Aga!nst Rac!sm’.
Greater Manchester Police are treating the incident as a rac!ally aggr*vated case and are asking anyone with information to call police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
