Opinion: Strangers helped in time of need

Dear Sir/ Madame,
In late July I was on a cycling holiday and passed through the Addison area. A couple and a man helped me, a complete stranger, and I wish to acknowledge their kindnesses.
I had hoped to arrive at the D.A.R. campground before 8 p.m., when I thought the park office closed. Less than a mile from the campground I had a tire blow-out just before that time. A gentleman, Mr. Rob Hunt, and his wife stopped their pickup truck and drove me to the campground. The next day I discovered that my inner tube, in spite of being patched, would no longer function. I normally have every possible repair item with me. An important matter just prior to my departure meant that I was short of a spare tube.
This time Mr. Chuck Leitch (Leach?) came to my assistance and supplied me with a tube and patch kit. His help meant that I did not have to make a diversion from my itinerary which would have been inconvenient. All of these kind people are from your area. I commend them to your readers. What kindness. I thank the Lord for them.
