SIR - What a shame that L. Taylor from Barnstaple saw the Secret Millionaire with such negative eyes.
It actually showed what an amazing place Barnstaple is to live in.
It highlighted those people who daily help and support complete strangers, who sometimes become friends, people who are worse off than themselves, whether that be financially, emotionally or physically.
People who are willing to give so much of themselves, whether they are paid or not, are all Secret Millionaires and I for one was deeply moved by their time, patience, understanding and non-judgemental positive attitude. They are able to give more than money can buy.
You may also want to watch:
What it showed to me, was that if you are homeless, if you have had issues with drugs and alcohol, if you have lost a child or sibling, or if you have a severely disabled child, someone, somewhere is there to help.
It is a pity that L. Taylor only wants to go round with rose tinted spectacles and hide her head under a bush rather than face the reality of life today.
- 1 Covid vaccine: Roll out continues but is North Devon being left out?
- 2 Plans to merge North Devon and Exeter health trusts move forward
- 3 Devon's Tiki surf brand is up for sale
- 4 Barnstaple man cleared of drug dealing charges
- 5 Barnstaple man attacked his wife and neighbour after Christmas drink
- 6 Covid delays Barnstaple councillor's trial again
- 7 'Bonkers' idea led to the creation of Children's Hospice South West
- 8 Northam murder suspect remanded in custody
- 9 I'm Still Standing: Ambulance worker's battle against the darkness
- 10 Three more Covid deaths at North Devon District Hospital but cases are falling
Perhaps L. Taylor has some time to volunteer and support these people. That would be a positive outcome from the programme, instead of the negative one that has been perceived.
