Good samaritan family

First published in Letters

I WOULD like to take say a huge thank you and show my sincere gratitude to the good samaritan family who helped me on Good Friday during a difficult situation.

The clutch on my car failed completely at the lights outside Sainsbury store, Park Crescent. Immediately a gentleman came and pushed my vehicle off the road into a nearby car park. Amazingly the whole family, whose sunny day I interrupted, remained with me for thirty minutes until the breakdown vehicle arrived. Unfortunately I did not get their name but understand they live in Westward Rise and have two boys, one attending Romilly School the other Barry Comprehensive. The whole time they were patient and excellently behaved while waiting with mum in their car. I am indeed eternally grateful to them all and shall never forget their willingness, kindness and care. Their Christ-like action certainly increased my faith in human nature.

Many thanks and God bless.
