A corona virus hero who supplies food and medicine to older villagers burst into tears after vandals smashed her car in heartbreaking images.
Helen Crouch, 41, has volunteered for two weeks as a counselor in Leicestershire to help retirees living in the countryside amid the nationwide shutdown.
But after taking a shepherd’s pie to an elderly person in Thornton on Sunday, the single mom discovered that all four tires on her VW Touareg were flat.
Vandals later returned to smash the windows and scratch the body of the vehicle.

In a clip, Mrs. Crouch broke down in tears as she filmed the damaged car.
“You know what, I’ve done solid response work for two villages in the past two weeks and someone put all my tires in,” she said.
“The car is broken now and it was necessary. I hope you are damn proud of yourself! ‘
Ms. Crouch’s car was attacked after she parked it outside a retiree’s house on Main Street in Thornton, Leicestershire.

She said, “There were leaflets advertising the reaction team in my rear windows, and everyone saw me in Thornton, Bagworth, and Stanton under Bardon.
“No other car was damaged. I think someone intentionally directed my car to try to prevent me from doing what I do.
“It is incredibly ill. All four straps have holes. It looks like someone used a big screwdriver to do the damage. ‘
Ever since she volunteered to volunteer, Ms Crouch has helped more than 100 vulnerable people get food and medicine during the coronavirus blockade.
A Just Giving page raised over £ 1,000 so the mom could replace her tires, but vandals returned to smash the windows and scratch the doors.

Ms. Crouch, a self-employed interior designer, said, “I don’t know who did it, but it could be someone who thought I broke the restrictions by driving my car.
“Whoever did this should be utterly ashamed.
“I did what I could for people who can’t go to the store or pharmacy, but I can’t do it without my car.”
Leicestershire police have confirmed that they are investigating cutting the tapes.
A police spokesman said, “We have received reports of damage to a vehicle parked on Main Street, Thornton.
“This would have happened between March 28 and 7 p.m. the next day.
“We would ask anyone who knows about the incident to call us.”
