Af­ter a woman went to great lengths to re­turn a lost purse, we ask: what’s the best good deed you’ve seen or done?

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

I once dropped my purse in Aldi’s car park con­tain­ing £200. A man came run­ning back into the shop with it and I of­fered him £30 to get him­self a drink or two. But he would not take it.

Mar­garet Brown, Ruther­glen

Some­one gave me the gift of life. I had a liver trans­plant 13 years ago. I do not know who the donor was but I am eter­nally grate­ful.

Hamil­ton Mclean, Har­wood

I use a stick when out and am grate­ful to the driv­ers who stop to let me cross the road.

Lorna Smith, North York­shire

I’m an OAP and I am of­ten on the re­ceiv­ing end of a good deed, when strangers give up their seats for me and help me in other ways.

Liz Kelly, Glas­gow

I saved a fam­ily when the kitchen went on fire. I smoth­ered the chip pan with a cush­ion and then got mum and the two chil­dren out.

Lor­raine An­der­son, Ed­in­burgh

I found that a col­league was go­ing to spend Christ­mas in a bed­sit. My wife and I in­vited him to our home. He had a great time.

Bill Bell, Not­ting­ham

I left my purse on the car roof at a High­land Games. A very kind per­son handed it in be­fore I even missed it!

Joan Fordyce, For­far

I have re­ceived plenty of small good deeds. They are just as im­por­tant as large good deeds and re­store your faith in peo­ple.

Gary Hop­ton, Fife

All my deeds were good in their own way, from look­ing af­ter an el­derly neigh­bour by cut­ting grass and get­ting news­pa­pers, to run­ning a neigh­bour to hos­pi­tal. I just try to help when I can.

James Walker, Glen­rothes

Help­ing folk is one of life’s small joys
