A VERY big thank you to the kind gentleman and lady who helped me in Aldi, Heswall.

Arriving at the check-out I realised I had forgotten my wallet.

I asked the check-out lady not to put my shop through the till.

Hearing this exchange, a man in the queue offered to pay for me, followed by a lady who put some money by the till.

OK, it was only a small basket-full but I was quite humbled by these acts of kindness.

I came away resolving to pass on this kindness somehow. The world is a better place when we look out for each other.
