A fund has been set up for a South Yorkshire couple targeted by mindless thieves who stole their miracle babies’ stroller.

The online community is trying to raise £700 to replace the pram, which Justin and Christine Clark use to transport their quadruplet daughters.

The thieves made off with the stroller from the family home in Brinsworth, Rotherham, on Monday between 1pm and 4.30pm, while Justin was at a play centre with Elisha, Caroline, Alexis and Darcy.

The girls made history two years ago when they became the first four children of the same sex to be born from a single embryo through IVF.

Justin said: “The stroller is the only one of its kind in this area. Whoever has done this has come down my drive and moved three wheelie bins to get to it.

“The girls only had their second birthday last week - this is a great start to them being two.”

Justin said he suspects the thieves took the stroller to sell it for scrap - but he said it is far more valuable to the family.

He said: “We are housebound to a degree. We do have some red wagons but they are open, so there is no way of protecting the girls from wind and rain.”

The fund has already raised nearly £200, with donations pouring in from across the globe.

The family has said it will try to buy a second hand pram, with any left over money being donated to the Special Care Baby Unit in Sheffield.

Christine and Justin decided to try IVF in 2012 and one embryo was implanted. Doctors were stunned when four babies developed.

The girls were born at Sheffield’s Jessop Wing before being transferred to Rotherham’s SCBU.

Anyone with information about the theft should call police on 101.
