“How Grand It was to Help Someone”

In October 2014, the Derby Telegraph (UK) published a column by Geoff Hayes about his helping a boy recover a stolen bicycle. At about 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday, after Mr. Hayes and his wife had returned home from shopping, he saw a boy with a sad face. He asked, “Have you lost something, sonny?” The boy replied, “Yes, I have. A man and a girl have pushed me off my bicycle and have ridden away on it.” “How long ago?” “About five minutes since, Mr. Hayes.” He then told the boy to get in his car: “We’ll go and try to find them — they can’t be very far.” They drove around and found the man and the woman, who ran away, leaving the bike behind. As it turned out, this was the boy’s first day riding the bike — his birthday present. Mr. Hayes wrote, “I went home feeling pretty pleased with how things had turned out. It had taken less than half an hour and a situation had been resolved.” A couple of hours later, the boy and his mother knocked on Mr. Hayes’ door. The boy’s mother said, “Mr. Hayes. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you did this afternoon. You’ll never know how much. I’ve only just finished paying for the bicycle. Thank you, thank you.” She kissed his cheek and gave him a large box of chocolates. Mr. Hayes wrote, “How grand it was to help someone.”
