Kind­ness of strangers re­stores faith

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Gavin Dal­gleish Warn­bro

Let me thank all those peo­ple who helped me on Sun­day, Au­gust 26, when I had a fall while walk­ing along The Av­enue in Warn­bro.

I must have tripped over my own big feet and I fell face-first onto the con­crete, which even my hard head could not with­stand.

I am not young, 76-years-old, and am very ap­pre­cia­tive in­deed of all the peo­ple who came to my as­sis­tance.

They came from their houses, and cars stopped and very kindly brought blan­kets and tis­sues, and waited till the am­bu­lance, which they had called, ar­rived.

Thanks are also due to the paramedics and the emer­gency depart­ment at Rock­ing­ham Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal. The ED was very busy in­deed but I was seen fairly quickly and dealt with with care and at­ten­tion.

Af­ter all the bad sto­ries one hears in the me­dia, this can re­store one’s faith in peo­ple’s kind­ness for a stranger.
