An act of kindness of a lady in Manchester helped a homeless man to reunite with his family
When Bev noticed a homeless man sleeping at a bus stop in Manchester, she walked into the nearby Baguettes of Broadway sandwich shop and handed the owner £15 to give the homeless man breakfast and hot drinks for a week. The owner of the shop Ciaran Egan shared the act of kindness done by the lady, on his shop’s Facebook page, which went viral in no time. The post was shared more than 10,000 times in less than 48 hours.
Today we have had a lady come into our shop and asked if it would be OK to pay £15.00 on a tab so that the homeless man that she has seen sleeping at the bus stop on Broadway could eat for the rest of the week. Obviously we accepted this and will be making his full meals all week. I don’t know this lady’s full name only that’s she’s called Bev. It touched my heart and thought she should have some recognition for her kindness. It doesn’t take much to help somebody when in need so we will be doing this at cost price so he gets more meals for the donation from Bev. Please can we share this post and get more people helping others that never ask for anything, Egan wrote.
Interestingly, Bev later realized that she actually knows the homeless man; he was in fact the brother of a former work colleague. She managed to contact with them and finally the family drove a very long way to pick him up. Now, the homeless man is safe with a family member and has a roof over his head.
Meanwhile, Egan has received messages from across Greater Manchester and the rest of the globe, all wanting to offer their support to the man and help him get back on his feet. It just shows this world is a small place and we all need to look out for each other no matter how big or small.
