Guide Leader Thanks Town's Caring People

Thursday July 18 2013

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

A GUIDE leader who was left distraught by a heartless thief says the kindness of Barnsley folk has reaffirmed her faith in human nature.

Silkstone guides faced having to cancel a highly-anticipated camping trip after someone stole the jockey wheel from the trailer containing all their gear.

The guides had worked long and hard to raise £400 to buy the trailer and their leader said she did not have the money to replace the stolen wheel.

That meant they faced the disappointment of having to cancel a planned trip later this month at an international guides camp in Lincoln.

However, a man tracked her down after reading her story and went to her home off Sheffield Road with a wheel for the trailer.

"I said last week that the person who stole from us was scum and it did make me question what sort of a world was I living in," she said.

"The world I am living in has many many lovely lovely people.

"I want to wholeheartedly thank everyone for their kind offers of help. So many people have shown so much kindness.

"It just shows the vast majority of Barnsley folk are kind and caring - they're simply wonderful and the guides and I are very very grateful."
