One of the Good Guys

How refreshing when we read constantly of politicians take, take, taking and big CEOs of companies firing people for a bigger profit margin….that one man takes a stand and provides a service for those around him.

A generous pensioner has funded a local bus service with his own money after officials axed Sunday routes in the winter. Alan Williams, 78, expects to pay a ‘couple thousand pounds’ for the X53 service to run twice a day between the Dorset towns of Bridport, Weymouth and Lyme Regis on Sundays until March. Operator First Group had been running four services on Sundays but stopped these on January 16 and said they would not return until March when the summer timetable launches and there are holidaymakers to make the service sustainable.

What a wonderful caring thing to do as he knows that there are an awful lot of older people who would be stuck without a bus service, and he is supplying a life line to them and that is priceless.

I think he has shown more humanity and caring in this gesture and he has put the bosses of that bus company to shame. He has put the needs of others before greed and for me he is officially one of the good guys.

We need more of them and he is a bright light in another wise murky seedy corrupt swamp that so many people seem to dwell in.
