LETTER: Thanks to cash point hero at Whalley Spar shop

Share this article

On Saturday, May 7th, I went to the cash machine outside the Spar shop in Whalley and, for whatever reason, my brain wasn’t engaged and I walked away without taking the substantial amount of money I had just withdrawn.

To the rescue came an honest gentleman who had seen what I had done, grabbed the cash and chased after me to hand it over. I was so dropped on by my own stupidity when I realised what I had done, I don’t even think I managed to muster a word of gratitude.

So, in the hope the gentleman concerned reads this, can I just say a huge (albeit delayed) and sincere thank you.
