Random acts of kindness


A warm and heartfelt thank you to the ladies of Engadine Bowls and the club staff for their potentially life-saving actions. On July 25 I experienced chest pain on the lawn greens and was hospitalised that night for a heart attack. If it wasn't for my coach Fay McMahon who insisted I go to the doctor, combined with Helen Hogan taking me to hospital soon after, I probably wouldn't be here today. I feel blessed to be part of such a wonderful compassionate community within Engadine Bowling Club and am grateful beyond words to say I am fighting fit again.

To Camille, the incredible kind lady that helped me out of the car park when my dockets wouldn't work, on September 24. More especially as it was peak hour and the traffic was formidable. Thought I was going to have to 'sleep' there - her little daughter must have wondered what on earth was happening.

I want to express my infinite thanks to the person who returned my lost handbag with all my documents which I left in a shopping trolley at the Rockdale Plaza car park on October 2. I had been in bed with the flu and I wasn't thinking clearly. I didn't realise I had lost my bag until I got home. Kogarah police phoned me that night to say that a lady brought it into them and everything was there. I didn't get a name but I would like to express my thanks to that kind person.

My mum had a nasty fall in the car park at Westfield Miranda on Sunday, September 15. I would like to thank the lovely couple who helped put her in my car. We had to call an ambulance when we arrived home and they couldn't have been more caring as were all the staff at Sutherland Hospital. After four days in hospital she returned home and will make a full recovery. Thank you so much. It was really appreciated at such a stressful time.
