Dad’s surprise when a man returned £220 that his daughter had misplaced while shopping.
A FAMILY was ecstatic when a “really good individual” retrieved hundreds of pounds that had been “scattered” outside a Boots store.
Georgeana Kenny, 24, withdrew £300 from a cash machine last weekend to contribute towards her boyfriend Liam’s 30th birthday celebrations, but was concerned when she discovered the money had gone missing later. She had just left Superdrug in St Helens, Merseyside, when she saw the money meant to pay a saxophonist had vanished.
Georgeana and her father Andy, 53, posted a plea for help on Facebook, but figured there was “no way” they’d see it again.
According to the Liverpool Echo, a woman contacted Andy after her father and daughter discovered some cash “scattered” on the floor and provided Andy their address in St Helens.
By accident, the man was Andy’s childhood friend, and he handed him £220 he’d found.
“He said he was out with his granddaughter and she said ‘look granddad, money,’ and as he looked there was another note and then another note, and he found £220 of the money,” Andy explained.
“I was convinced there was no way I’d ever see that money again. For one thing, it’s incredible that it was discovered, and for another, for someone to be so generous.
“It’s a substantial sum of money; someone could have used it to pay for gas, electricity, or a new tyre for their car. Life is not cheap.
“It was a wonderful gesture from a wonderful man.”

Andy continued, “He’s a few years older than me, but we grew up in the same neighborhood.” I knew him as a kid; his name is Paul, and I know his brothers.
“I recognized him as soon as he opened the door, and he recognized me as well, and I told him you couldn’t make this up.
“I just told you how grateful I am. I tried to offer him £20 because that is what Georgeana and I wanted to do, but he stated there was no way.
“I even told him to give it to your granddaughter, but he claimed he was just happy we got our money back. Because.”Brinkwire Summary News,” he was all remorseful.
