LETTER: Taken poorly at the checkout

On Thursday morning, January 5, I became very lightheaded while at the till in Sainsbury’s, Hampden Park. The checkout lady asked if I was alright, then I fell to the ground.

The staff gave wonderful care and sat with me for some time. They even rang later to see if I was alright. I felt quite sick so decided it would be best to walk.

I met a friend and her husband, who could see I was still weak. He went back for his car and there was a little confusion where he would pick us up. While waiting, I went down again outside the Post Office.. A very kind gentleman called Steve insisted on taking me home and would not accept payment.

The kindness of strangers is amazing. I have always found pleasure in helping others and this time I was the grateful recipient. Thank you one and all.
