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.”
