A woman has gifted a grateful spaza owner with a bicycle. Martin runs a spaza shop which assists the elderly with supplies.
He used to live on the streets before he was assisted by the not-for-profit organisation, One Small Act Of Kindness. He now runs his business and is making something of his life. A woman named Tamara has made his life even easier by blessing him with a bicycle. He can now be mobile and travel easier.

"Oh thats fantastic news!! Well done people!!"
While Tarryn Caizergues said:
"Thank you Tamara!"
