THROUGH their 2BS Christmas Miracle Appeal and other community projects, Stephanie and Ron Camplin have been helping out the community for decades.
But now they need the community's help.
Stephanie and Ron owned 2BS for 50 years, and only recently sold the radio station, but their transition into retirement hasn't been a smooth one.
While away from Bathurst, their family home here was broken twice within a week.
The first time security got there in under five minutes, disturbed the perpetrators who ran off. However within three days the thieves tried again, and this time made off with over $80,000 in goods, including intellectual property which cannot be replaced.
It was owned by their son James, who stored his property while away studying and also pursuing a career in screenwriting and film making.
"He has lost almost everything," Mr Camplin said.
"Film gear, lenses, camera mounts, a professional camera portable storage backpack with a street value of around $80,000.
"And then there are his guitars, he has lost three very distinctive guitars easily recognisable, clothing, and so much personal memorabilia including hard drives with all his writings, raw footage from his overseas travels and scripts going back 10 or more years....all now gone."
Mr Camplin said quite a few personal items are engraved with his name and the family are hoping that raises a flag with someone.
"Then there is his almost museum quality collection of video gaming.
"He saved all the early 1980's developmental games given to his brother all meticulously stored and much in original boxes."
Mr Camplin said all are absolutely irreplaceable.
"Hundreds of items and I fear he may never get any of it back," he said.
"Our son is devastated and we are trying to help him any way we can through this. We are in fact offering a reward for the return of the hard drives. His work is what matters," he said.
If anyone in the wider community knows anything of this burglary, or has been offered any of the stolen items, would they please contact the Bathurst Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
