We were all dreaming of a White Christmas until we saw the devastating effect of the snow on the railway service. We may implode if we hear the word delay once more.
There’s not many things you can rely on in life, but a touching story reported by BBC News this morning has brought back our Christmas spirit, our faith in the goodness of humanity and, not least, in the National Rail service.
We can’t do justice to the full story so please do read it, but to summarise, one Good Samaritan’s act of selfless kindness in 1982 allowed writer Bernard Hare to visit his dying mother in hospital. And in the end, all he asked for in return was to do something good for someone else in the future. A heartwarming story.
From all of us at 247Moneybox.com, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
