A total stranger paid for a paramedic’s petrol to say thanks for dedicating his career to saving lives.
Tony Jones, 43, said he was ‘blown away’ by the man’s spontaneous act of kindness.
Tony, a dad-of-three who works as an emergency medical technician for North West Ambulance Service, opened up about the heartwarming encounter on Facebook.
He filled up his car with petrol at the Texaco Garage on Halifax Road, in Rochdale, on his way to work a night shift in Rossendale.
He walked in to pay, only to find out that the man in front had already settled the £40 bill for him.
‘I went outside and thanked him, he told me that we, meaning North West Ambulance Service, do a fantastic job and it’s the least he could do for people who do such an important job. He wished me a very safe night, shook my hand and drove off.
‘It’s been a long time since I have been completely taken back by someone’s actions.’
