One of our SHIELD members, Grace, perfectly demonstrated the values of our group over the Easter holiday when she assisted a stranger in need…
“During Easter, I was returning home from a visit to my gran’s house. At a crossing in Hellesdon I saw a lady waiting to cross the road who was hearing and visually impaired.
Luckily I’ve recently had training on Braille and I had a Braille sheet in my bag. I was able to help the lady by guiding her gently on my arm.
The lady was so pleased, she tried to offer me a present but I refused. I don’t want any reward, it’s just nice to be nice.”
Well done Grace! That’s the spirit of SHIELD!
