Grateful Friends, Bangalow

Who says that we do not live in a caring part of the world? On Friday evening we caught up with elderly friends of ours (late eighties) for a pizza in Bangalow. Unbeknown to us the man had injured himself earlier in the day. But he duly hobbled in using a walking stick and after a relaxed and laughter-filled evening they left.

After we parted company it seems that he was struggling to get down the last step from the staircase when a car stopped and a young man jumped out to assist. That was so kind and unexpected, an act of pure chivalry and respect that we as friends would like to pass on our sincere thanks to that Good Samaritan. That sort of kindness restores one’s faith in humankind.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
