On Sunday when I was going to the local corner shop from Geoff’s.
A Romanian girl, called Anna, stopped me and asked me if I could help her.
She was a student starting her studies in September, going to Kings College ( I think )
Basically she had travelled to Cambridge from Ely to try and secure herself a place at the YMCA.
The guy, she did give me his name but I cannot remember it now, had taken £200 off her to secure her a room with 6 other girls.
This left her with no money and she needed to get back to Ely to collect her belongings.
So I took her to the train station and got her a return ticket rather than just give her money.
On the way she told me all about her family and how poor Romania is compared to England.
She told me how little they earn but also how cheap thing were in Romania compared to England.
Now a lot of you think this was a sham and that I was conned .
If I really wanted too I could look her up at the YMCA but I don’t feel the need too.
The ticket only cost me £3.50 and I would like to think if my boys ever needed help someone would be kind enough to help them.
Also it gave me a lot of pleasure to help this girl out and the feel good factor was worth far more than £3.50.
