Appeal for kind card sender to get in touch

I AM writing to send my sincerest thanks to a very kind person in Whitley Bay.

I lost a birthday card addressed to my elderly father in Leighton Buzzard a fortnight ago, in the high winds, on my way to the post office to buy a stamp.

The lost card has just been delivered to my Dad, with a first class stamp attached.

What a great demonstration of generosity which is so rare these days.

I hope the thoughtful person who posted this card for me reads this letter as I am very grateful and will, of course, refund any costs involved – please get in touch via the News Guardian.
