Have your say

On April 20, I lost my engagement ring while working as a volunteer in the RSPCA shop in Hunstanton.

I spent many hours searching the shop/bins etc to no avail. I was understandably heartbroken. On May 2, a young lady customer found the ring amongst an assortment of doggy toys and handed it in to the cashier. I had spent 12 days thinking that it had been lost to me forever. I was so grateful. I cried, hugged her and told her I loved her! She was reluctant to take all the money I had in my purse but the value of the ring to me was beyond money. I have always had faith in the intrinsic honesty of my fellow man and in this case I was double rewarded. You may, too, be amused by the response of the police officer to whom I reported my loss. She said that if anyone found the ring she was sure it would be handed in as the people of Hunstanton were very honest – this from someone who deals with crime all day, every day. From the bottom of my heart I thank each and every person who treated me so sympathetically through my ordeal which was so happily concluded.
