Family brought to tears by stranger’s stunning act of kindness

A family was stunned by a kind stranger’s reaction when her son accidentally hit him with a balloon.

Lisa, a mum from Llanedeyrn, Cardiff, took her partner Philip and two young children to Frankie and Benny’s on Newport Road on Monday, August 14.

As they waited for their food, a waitress gave Luca, her two-year-old son, some colouring books and a balloon to help pass the time.

But the restless tot accidentally hit a man over the head with the inflatable as he ate his dinner.

The parents profusely apologised and asked to be moved, and found later on that their fellow customer wasn’t as inconvenienced as they had thought.

Speaking to Wales Online, the mum said her son was “being a bit of a b***er” and was “getting restless because it was quite busy”.

He was excitable when he received the balloon and started “waving it around” and “hitting a gentleman on the head”.

She asked the waitress to move so the man could “eat in peace”, but the diner was content with them sitting nearby.

While he was happy to socialise with the family, they moved away “out of respect”, and, to their shock, they found he returned the favour by paying for their meal.

Lisa said they were left in disbelief and brought to tears by the act of kindness.

She said: “Me and my boyfriend both had tears in our eyes, it was such a kind thing to do.”

The family is now searching for the generous stranger, who forked out £70 for the bill and extra ice cream.

Lisa said they were told of the act by a waitress with a huge smile on her face, who said this had “never happened in there before”.

She added: “I know there’s a slim chance of finding him, but I would love to repay him and buy him a meal.”

Lisa added: “Going out with the children can be stressful sometimes. It’s really nice that rather than getting annoyed about it, he did that.”
