“I bumped into her on Saturday and she melted my heart
“She attended the schools Children in Need charity night and took her beautiful wee daughter up on her bike
“While inside some inconsiderate individual stole it
“So I was waiting on her this morning to ask if the school had done anything to retrieve it and she replied no.
“I told her to shut her eyes while I nipped to the back of my van last night after my shift I went away and bought her a bike for her daughter
“Poor woman had tears in her eyes”
