A PENSIONER Para who has served in the world’s hot spots has shown he has a soft spot.
The anonymous benefactor has donated his car to the nurses and staff at the Hospice of the Good Shepherd.
The kind hearted 70-year- old, who lives in Chester, decided to give his vehicle to the hospice as he thought it may be short of transport due to the ever increasing demand for services.
As he found himself at a loss for things to do, like many ex servicemen, he decided to buy a BMW from Mill Car Sales at Tarvin Bridge who offered the ex Para an opportunity to learn the basics of car mechanics.
He was soon able to learn the mechanics of a different car when he decided to swap his BMW for a Mercedes.
Roberts Refinishing Ltd in Ellesmere Port gave up their time to respray the bodywork and within days the Mercedes was like new, especially when Chester based The Smart Repair Company sprayed the wheels.
Unfortunately, due to a previous road accident, it became increasingly difficult for the owner to get in and out of the car.
“I am only too happy to help my local hospice as they do so much good for people,” said the serviceman.
“They have made me feel that I actually belong somewhere and have given me a purpose again.”
