Letter to the editor: Happy ending to Doonside Freedom Day bag snatching

EDITOR – I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who came to our assistance on Freedom Day (Thursday, 27 April) while assisting my mom out of the car and into her wheelchair in a Doonside car park.

A tall scoundrel stole my handbag out of the car and ran into the bush at the railway bridge.

While I was running and screaming, one particular motorist stopped his bakkie, and his assistant ran into the bushes along with a few other helpers. They dragged the criminal out and handed me my handbag intact, with nothing missing. They taught him a good lesson, I might add.

I’m extremely grateful to them all, because without them stopping to assist, I would’ve lost everything and had the huge inconvenience of replacing it all. So to all you kind souls, thank you. And to the women from the laundromat, thank you for watching out for my mom, who I’d just left stranded in her wheelchair in the car park. God bless you all.
