Shoppers in Corby have been thanked for helping a lady who collapsed in the town centre.

Margaret Napier, who lives in the town, sent the Telegraph a letter thanking all those who helped her when she fell on Saturday, June 14.

Here’s what she said: “The people of Corby, I salute you.

“On Saturday, June 14, I collapsed while waiting for my bus to take me home.

“As I lay on the ground, two people came along to help me.

“I do not remember their names but would like to thank them.

“I would also like to thank the first aiders from the Cube.

“Then, off the number one bus came my guardian angel Wendy, who stayed with me all the time.

“She even went to Primark to get a pillow and blanket to cover me.

“The manager was very understanding and gave her the pillows and blankets free of charge.

“Wendy came with me in the ambulance to Kettering Hospital accident and emergency unit and stayed with me all the while.

“She then came home with me in a taxi, saw that I was reasonably settled then left her phone number saying that I should call her any time. Aren’t people grand?

“Talk about Good Samaritans, the people of Corby should be proud of themselves.

“I, for one, salute them.

“Later that evening my neighbour Isabel helped me to Corby minor injuries unit because my eyebrow was still bleeding and required two stitches and then came home with me.

“Aren’t neighbours great?”

We’d love to track down Margaret’s Good Samaritans.
