Sergeant Neil Taylor from the Mid Holderness Community Team said: “The kind-hearted victim had filled his van and was going to volunteer to help the team from the BBC television programme ‘DIY SOS’ in Hessle.
“He was offering to do his bit for the community and someone has now taken his tools. We want to try and get them back to him so he can help out with the building project.
“Please call us with any information you may have in relation to this.”
