A little act of kindness saves a girl's life from the high cost of living

A family offered to help a mother with universal credit, and her little girl had a special day.

BBC Good Morning Ulster's Caroline Rice said that she was feeling so poor she thought she would have to quit her job as a classroom assistant.

Ms Rice stated that she doesn't know if she can afford to get to work right now as she borrowed money to pay for diesel.

The Bell family, from Bangor in County Down, was listening and felt compelled by the situation to help.

They approached Ms Rice hoping to be put in touch with her so they could give her and her daughter a small donation that could be used however they pleased.

"It's not right that a hardworking mom trying to provide for her children is in such a difficult time," Mr Bell said on Friday.

"The cost to live has risen and Caroline is struggling, and that's not right.

"We live in a society where we should look out for our neighbors and make sure people don't go bed wondering about where their diesel will get them to work.

Caroline, who lives in Fermanagh said that she felt trapped in a vicious cycle and was struggling to see the light at its end in her first interview.

She said, "It's much more than food, diesel, it is not being able buy your child a pair or shoes."

She stated that she was overwhelmed by the kindness of strangers and used the money for her daughter's day.

Caroline stated that the money allowed her to take her child to the cinema.

"She was able to enjoy the movie in the comfortable seats. It was a treat for her. In two years, we have not been to the cinema.

Ms Rice stated that it wasn't just her daughter who was helped by the Bell family's generous donation.

She gave some of the money to an English family she knew that would help her pay for a birthday gift for her 13-year old child.

It does nothing but lift people up. I want to take people along and help them.

It shows that there are good people all over the globe. There are many good people despite all the bad things happening around the world.
