Many thanks for lady’s kind­ness

The Chronicle - - Feedback -

ON the day of the ter­ri­ble storm two weeks ago, when the Metro and other traf­fic came to a stand­still, our Metro from New­cas­tle to Caller­ton Parkway was held up due to a tree on the line at Kingston Park.

We were held up at Faw­don Metro sta­tion for one and a half hours.

The driver sent for taxis or other trans­port to get peo­ple to their des­ti­na­tions but due to break­down of all trans­port this did not hap­pen.

The driver tried his best and al­lowed us to get back on the train af­ter what seemed like hours.

There was one good thing that came out of this.

I was in a dread­ful state due to the wind and cold when a lady from Faw­don came along and gave me a pash­mina for the cold.

I asked her for her name and ad­dress to send it back to her but she said just keep it as she was pleased to do this for some­one. I was very touched in this day and age that kind­ness is still around.

If she reads this mes­sage I would like to say a sin­cere thanks to her for her thought­ful­ness.

I have told friends about this lady and her kind­ness. It just goes to show there are still kind peo­ple, es­pe­cially in the north east. OLIVE WHITE, Wal­bot­tle
