SIR - I would like to thank, through your pages, a very kind lady who helped me at the QE2 Hospital in WGC last month.
My daughter had been rushed into A&E earlier in the day.
Thankfully, she recovered and we went to the cafe to get a drink.
We found that the cafe does not accept cards, and the nearest cashpoint would have been a 10 minute walk away!

She seemed upset so we didn't want to press her any more than we already had.
I would be very grateful if you could publish this letter in the hope that she might see this letter.
We were so touched by the simple kindness of a stranger.
