Tony Coombs, who leads the Memory Lane crew, which holds sponsored bike rides for good causes, said the Samsung Galaxy S6 fell out of his pocket on Wednesday night between Park Street and Stocklake, Aylesbury.

When he phoned the number it was answered, but it sounded like the device was in someone’s pocket.

He said: “It has precious photos of all the charity events, our calendar of forthcoming events and all of my charity contacts.

“It really has broken my heart, it must have fallen out of my pocket.”

Tony said the phone has now been blocked, making it useless to anybody else.

Phone shops in the local area have also been warned it has gone missing.

He said he would be ‘so grateful’ if the phone is returned to him and is even offering a ‘small reward’.

The phone is black and has a black case.

Tony can be reached on 07713761440 or alternatively the phone can be handed in to Aylesbury Police Station in Wendover Road, Aylesbury.

In October the crew raised money for Cancer Research (see picture, above).
