A teenager who jumped out of the car to help an elderly man up the hill on Bridge Street has been hailed a true gent.

Debbie Chappell, 43, from Sunnyside, Worksop, was behind the dark grey people carrier on Monday, October 29 at about lunchtime when she saw a teenage boy get out the car and help and help a man who was struggling to walk with two sticks.

“The old man was having a really tough time with the incline by the British Heart Foundation but this lad was helping him the best he could.

“He’s a credit to his parents and his lovely gesture brought a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat and deserves a Guardian Rose if we can find him.”

The young lad was about 15 or 16, 5ft6 with dark hair and wearing a blue polo shirt.

After leaving the car the driver shouted something to him but the mystery chap said the man he was helping needed to go to the Post Office and was going with him.

Debbie added: “His actions were selfless and his good deed shouldn’t go unnoticed.”
