KINDNESS: People were wonderful

We were on holiday last week and had an amazing time.

The only blot on that was a skid in the car where it lost control. Even that was turned into a life-affirming event as the wonderful people of Northumberland stopped and asked if they could help as I stood on the verge in the rain with my young son awaiting recovery.

People turned round and made detours out of their day to ensure that we were safe, and even offered us a seat in their cars to keep dry. I was close to tears each time the sheer human kindness and consideration was shown to us.

We will be visiting again, but can’t thank you all enough for you kindness and consideration.

Ruth Gordon,
