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!

I was about to give up, but an extremely kind lady insisted we take some money to get a drink.

She completely refused to give me her name, address or phone number for us to return the cash.

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.

Mrs M Bates,

Beresford Road,

St Albans.
