• REVESBY’s Warwick, 89, wants to thank a local supermarket shopper for her kindness. “I was there when the doors opened on Tuesday morning because I was out of toilet paper but by the time I got to that part of the store, since I move rather slowly, all the supplies had been cleaned out,” he said. “Disappointed and wondering what I would do, I was standing in the queue with another few items, when the woman in front, who had several packets of 12, offered me one of hers. I can’t thank her enough, it’s great to know there is still goodness in the world.”

• A FORGETFUL shopper got home and realised that she had left one bag of groceries behind at the Bankstown Woolies. Heading back with little hope of it still being there, she was delighted to find staff had put her bag, which included chicken, into the drinks fridge to keep it cold until her return. “It was so kind,” she said. “And I picked up the cloth bag in Scotland so I would have been very disappointed to lose it, not to mention all the shopping.”
