A teenager has been praised for helping an elderly woman at a shopping centre.

Alishia Dann, 15, a pupil at Marshalls Park School, Pettits Lane, Romford, noticed the woman was in distress after losing her wedding ring.

The pupil comforted the lady, assisted her to the information desk at The Mercury Mall, Mercury Gardens, Romford, and helped her look for it.

The Mall’s helpdesk ambassador, Karen Sach said: “After asking if she was ok, Alishia helped her quickly look around the area and then brought her to the helpdesk.

“As the elderly lady was very upset, Alishia explained what was wrong and all the while she remained caring and considerate for the lady’s feelings, she even helped her look in her personal belongings and her handbag as a last thought.

“It was such good news to find that her wedding ring was found at the bottom of her bag.

“We were all chuffed to bits but none more than the lady herself.

“A huge thanks goes out to Alishia for staying by her side and showing such maturity in helping the way she did.

“As a special thank you from us we presented Alishia with a big bag of goodies.”

The modest teenager said: “I just did what I would want someone to do if it was my nan.”

Karen added: “She [Alishia] is a credit to herself, her family and also to the school.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
