Mary Johnson, Coogee 

Last Monday my husband and I booked a lift through Steve’s Tours Airport Express to take us to Ballina Airport. We had been holidaying in Byron Bay with our son and his family.

On the way to the airport I noticed I had my grandson’s epipen still in my bag. My grandson is highly allergic and the epipen needs to be with him at all times. Naturally I panicked and asked the driver, Ross, if he could take it back to Byron Bay on his return trip. I offered him money but he wouldn’t take it. Not only did he do this he even took it right to the unit where my son was staying.

I was so moved by his generosity and eagerness to please that I wanted to share this story with others. It really does restore one’s faith in human kindness.

Thank you, Ross!
