A lady met on the street needed a warm coat. It was agreed to meet up the next day to supply a very waterproof winter coat…..her comment to me was “Thank you, you know when I walk the streets people don’t see me I am invisible..thank you …you noticed me”
During the later part of 2012 on one of David’s Street walks he met with a small group of people sitting on a park bench. It was a cold day and a coat was preferable even when walking. One man was dressed only in shorts and a lightweight jacket and was visibly shivering from the cold and in much distress. I had a jumper with me so that helped but promised to come back with some trousers the following day.
As it happened there was a sale on in a clothes shop close by and in particular “cammo” trousers were half price….2 were his size 34 waist!!! Minutes later I returned with the trousers
and as he opened the bag he exclaimed ” BUT they are NEW!” I wonder when he last had a new pair given him?
