A sunny thanks to our readers

By Wendy Williams

THE victim of a 20,000 euro solar panel robbery has thanked Olive Press readers for ‘restoring her faith in human nature’.

It comes after the Olive Press reported how British couple Sarah Hermitage, 58, and Stewart Middleton, 62, had been left without light after being targeted by thieves who stole 20 solar batteries, a generator and 20,000 euros worth of tools from their remote Granada home.

Within an hour of the paper hitting the stands last issue, the newsroom was inundated with calls from kind readers offering generators to help the couple in need.

“I am overwhelmed by everyone’s kindness,” said Hermitage. “It has restored my faith in human nature.

“I always knew there were good people out there, and your readers are obviously some of them.”

  1. The Human Spirit remains alive, and MANY folks like to help others. It usually comes down to KNOWING help is needed… and that’s where good Media comes in to help it along.
    Hope all goes well for you, and that the blankety-blanks who stole your batteries/generator get the FINAL shock
    of their lives…. hee hee!
