Letter to editor: Thank you for the kindness

I was travelling home on Wednesday, December 27 and the bus stopped in Gloucester for lunch.  

I quickly ran around the shops and thought I would buy myself a birthday present for the 28th. 

I went to pay at the counter and the most delightful lady - who was a complete stranger to me - and also in severe difficulties with her health - unbeknownst to me had already paid for the article.  

Quickly, I ran out of the shop to thank her. I caught up with her and was overwhelmed by her absolute generosity.  

Words are not enough for her kindness at this time of year. 

You are indeed a caring human being.​
