Tim O'Connell Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Just days after Dan Younghusband had his lemon stand honesty box broken into and destroyed, thieves targeted it for a fifth time on Monday.
But he has also been overwhelmed by offers of support, including a project to build him a more secure stand.

What design aspects does a roadside fruit stall require these days? Would you spare some lemons to Dan's cause if you knew the stall was theft-proof?
