LETTER - ‘Thanks to Diss charity shop for helping me’
May I thank the manageress of the Feline Care Charity Shop in Diss, Louise Revel, and two other customers who came to my assistance when I fell up the stone stairs to the shop falling heavily and hitting my head, face and shoulder.
It was very painful and very stupid of me, at 87 I should have been more careful, but thanks to Louise, the ambulance eventually arrived (they had travelled from Great Yarmouth).
I was taken to Norwich Hospital and kept in overnight, but I felt disgusted with myself for taking space and time when the staff and hospital were under so much stress and there was people waiting in long queues.
I must say, I now have the most colourful black eye I’ve ever seen.
