I would like to send a great big shout out to say thank you to a wonderful Howick resident!
My family and I were staying at Beverley Cottages, Impendle, for the Christmas weekend.
On Christmas day our vehicle would not start, and we managed to push start it. The car was “revving” and didn’t sound very healthy.
We called Eddie from ‘Eddies Motors’. I disturbed his Christmas lunch and yet he was amenable and concerned. Later that evening he called to say that he would come out to the farm on Boxing day to assess the problem.
I desperately needed to travel back to Johannesburg on the 26th December to get to work.
Eddie drove to Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday, after Christmas, to purchase a car battery as he couldn’t get one in Howick and then drove out to Beverley Cottages. It was a holiday and yet he was willing to give up his time out of the goodness of his heart. He drove out to us and fortunately it was a flat battery in the car causing the problems. He then followed us to the Highway to make sure that we didn’t have any issues.
It is wonderful to realise that there are people out there who care and in the Christmas spirit make things easier for others out of the goodness of their heart.
Thank you, Eddie for outstanding service, to people you didn’t know.
We really appreciate your help.
