    Praise for Sainsburys 14th Jun 17 at 12:34 PM
    A housebound neighbour of mine is elderly with dementia, and this morning he ran out of Tenna pads (his carers on holiday).

    He asked me to help but I couldn't get them locally & have no car.
    I phoned boots in the town and they couldn't help, I phoned Tenna, the incontinence people, loads of chemist.

    Then I phoned sainsburys, explained the emergancy & they said they will get a driver to deliver them to him straight away. I offered my card to pay for them and they said they want no money ....it's a gesture of good will. 20 mins later they turn up with four packs to his address. THANK YOU SAINSBURYS 💕

    Lovely to read things like this. X

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)
