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 Man wielding knife arrested in Barnstaple park
- 2 2021 North Devon Show cancelled
- 3 Braunton farmer admits ploughing up 'semi natural' land
- 4 North Devon high streets get set to welcome residents back
- 5 Rapid coronavirus tests now available across Devon
- 6 Prince Philip's last North Devon visit remembered
- 7 Date set for reopening of Bideford Pannier Market
- 8 iLab marks 10th birthday with pledge to raise £10,000 for North Devon Hospice
- 9 Property of the Week: Ford Rise, Bideford
- 10 Flags fly at half mast across North Devon for Prince Philip
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.
