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 Cyclist left with ‘serious head injuries’ after incident in Bideford
- 2 Vandalism at Bideford's Brunswick Wharf development condemned
- 3 Real ice rink coming to Barnstaple Christmas Village
- 4 North Devon architectural practice appoints new director
- 5 Bid for £34 million to improve Devon's bus services submitted
- 6 Firework display set to return to Barnstaple Rugby Club for 2021
- 7 New app 'Dscvr' promoting North Devon town centres set to launch
- 8 Meet former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo in Barnstaple
- 9 Barnstaple Waterstones to host first event since March 2020
- 10 Volunteers come together to spruce up Barnstaple Train Station
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.
