Letter: Kind, helpful, caring teenagers

Date published: 12 February 2018

Dear Editor,

I thought I would write to you as I thought it would be really nice to put a positive look on our younger generation.

Last night, Sunday 11 February, we were fighting the snow and sliding all over the place with our disabled daughter and our three-year-old.

We were extremely worried we would have to walk the 45 minutes’ walk carrying our girls as we were stuck in the snow on Greave.

There were several young lads who pushed us, and about 40 other cars, up the hill while showing massive concern about people with babies in the car getting stuck.

The teenage younger generation don't often get shown in a good light and I really believe giving them credit for restoring my faith in human beings and getting my children home safe.

It would do a lot of good and maybe get more young people to behave and do good things as they see the appreciation that is deserved.

They were out until all hours pushing cars uphill in the freezing cold snow.

I think they deserve their kind help to be noticed.

Thank you.
