SIR - I was saddened to read of Mr Cashin's experience (Herts Advertiser, October 1). I will share another that the manageress of the Marie Curie charity shop and myself had earlier this week.
On the morning of Monday, September 28, people would have seen a gentleman pushing a trolley laden with his effects along the High Street, Harpenden. Two banners, stitched letters in black. One read, "Walking through the Universe", the other "Rolling Stones 45".
Previously this gentleman came into the Marie Curie charity shop, scrutinised for quite some time a pair of shoes. "Were they all leather?", "Yes, they were."
At the door a passer-by had stopped to read the banners. This gentleman not only paid for the shoes but also overcame the walker's reluctance to have the change he had pressed upon him.
