Helped out of the kindness of his heart

Have your say

I would like to make you aware of an act of kindness by a member of staff at the VIP Salon on Holme Lane in Hillsborough.

The owner, Hayley is a friend of mine and at the time her employee was totally unaware of this.

I was on my way to an appointment and my car battery went flat in Hillsborough.

I went to Hayley’s place to see if I could borrow her computer to get the phone number of a local garage. She said there was no problem. One of her staff asked me what the problem was and I told him. It turned out he used to work for BMW and told me to go to Wilkinsons and get some de-ionised water.

He then came with me to my car, had a look at it and bump-started it.

In the stress of it all I never remembered this man’s name, however I am really grateful. This was a shop going out of their way to help a customer.
