Nick was devastated and began to think about cancelling cards and replacing ID.

But then to his delight he received a mysterious package with a hand written note.

“I was shocked when my wallet came back to me,” he continued.

“Someone must have read my address on my driver's license and posted it to me.

“I was totally overwhelmed that someone would do something so kind.

“I really want to get in touch with the person who did this so I can say thank you properly.

“If I was in their position I would have probably just handed it in at the station so the fact that they went the extra mile and posted it out to me really deserves some recognition.

“After 18 months of negativity it’s really a wonderful thing that they did for me.

“It’s not just made my day but my whole year.”
