A Durban woman has been blown over by the kindness of a Good Samaritan.

Nikita Rampersat said she was at Windmills in Nottingham Road having lunch when she left her handbag behind.

“I carelessly left my handbag in the restaurant. Not really having any need for anything in my handbag throughout the day, I only realised that I had left it behind once I got back to Durban at about 5pm. I was convinced it was gone forever. I tried contacting The Windmills yesterday and unfortunately it was after closing time.”
