We meet heroes everyday, great and small, and often in the most unexpected situations.

Thanks to u

People carry out kind, thoughtful and heroic acts every day.

Remarkable actions and positive words can make someone’s day, and even change someone’s life.

But these wonderful people – passers-by, colleagues, bus drivers, nurses or friends, may disappear before we have a chance to thank them properly.

So – roll back the weeks, the months, or even the years. You can now reach that person on this site, by saying “Thanks To You“

Your hero, your important person, or your kind stranger may never read it. But others will. And they will recognise the importance of such acts of kindness.

Thanks to Pete the guy who stopped to tow me out of the snow this morning. I was desperate to get to hospital. Pete, you got me there, for that I'm eternally grateful. Stay safe man, I know you'll still be towing people out to safety now.

It's been very humbling to read stories of dedicated NHS staff walking miles through the snow to get to their places of work. We the general public appreciate you all more than you can ever know. A massive thank you from me and thousands of other people across this snow-bound land!

Somehow we started to do small talk, then it was clear that you were listening to me and I felt I could open up to a stranger the way I couldn't to a friend. You showed understanding and humanity when it seemed the rest of the world didn't care. That conversation helped me to think about things I hadn't been able to put into words until then. Thank you for listening to me and giving me your time. It helped immensely and I've made changes to my life and am beginning to feel much happier.

Place: A snowy road near Alston

What a hero, thanks to Mick we didn't have to spend all night stuck in a ditch in the snow. Thanks Mick for coming along and towing our car out of the ditch and back onto the road. The snow was so deep we'd have probably frozen to death trying to dig ourselves out or walking for help. You were great - thank you so much for coming along just at that moment and stopping to help us.

- Ian and Kath Bainbridge
