‘We saw the money and handed it in’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

HON­ESTY is def­i­nitely the best pol­icy as far as Julie Bowles and her daugh­ter Ab­bie are con­cerned.

The mum and daugh­ter, who live in God­in­ton Park, have been iden­ti­fied as the Good Sa­mar­i­tans who handed in a purse con­tain­ing an­other girl’s birth­day money.

We re­ported a fort­night ago how Vic­to­ria Red­fern, 10, pic­tured right, and her mum Lisa were shop­ping at the Park Farm Tesco when Vic­to­ria dis­cov­ered she’d lost her purse con­tain­ing £55 in cash that she’d been given by her grand­par­ents for her birth­day.

The cou­ple re­turned to their Park Farm home, where a thor­ough search failed to find the purse.

So mum and daugh­ter dashed back to the Tesco helpdesk and to their de­light dis­cov­ered some­one had handed in Vic­to­ria’s purse, with all the cash still in­side it.

The find­ers were Mrs Bowles and Ab­bie, seven, who con­tacted the Ken­tish Ex­press to say they were the purse’s find­ers.

Mrs Bowles ex­plained: “We were do­ing the weekly shop. We were in the car park when Ab­bie spot­ted the purse. We looked in­side and saw the money and thought we had bet­ter hand it in.

“It was nice to see the girl get her money back.”
