A talented young musician is offering a £200 reward for the safe return of his violin.
Budding violinist Ignacy Stefanowicz needs your help to reunite him with his missing instrument which he left behind on the bus on Saturday, February 1.
The 10-year-old was with his mum and baby sister returning from his music lesson around 11.15am when they boarded the 235 bus from Busch Corner, Isleworth, to Bell Corner, Hounslow, before jumping onboard the 116 to Bedfont Green. When they reached home, he realised he had left his violin behind.
The instrument is in a blue case with a distinctive handmade green pocket with a floral pattern on the top. The violin is pale straw colour and has a label stating it was made by Peter Sermon in the 1920s.
Hounslow Police and the bus companies have been informed. Ignacy. who attends Oriel Primary School in Hanworth, was recently named as one of the pupils who won a sought-after four-year music scholarship from the Mayor's Music Fund.
He had been lent the violin by an instrument trust. He is devastated to have lost the violin as not only was he a very talented violinist, but his grandfather, who recently passed away, made violins.
Anyone with information is asked to call Hounslow Music Service on 020 8583 2967, email email@example.com , or contact Hounslow Police station.
