I AM an 80-year-old pensioner and I am writing this letter to thank the many people who came to my aid after I had tripped and smashed my face on the ground on July 4 when I was walking on Wakehurst Road, Butler.

I was left with a very bruised and swollen face.

I would also like to thank my doctor and nursing staff at the Jindalee Clinic who looked after me.

E.J DAVIS, Butler.
