When Asda colleague Emily Kellett took the time to chat to a stranger she didn’t realise her chance encounter would touch so many people.
Emily, who is a Mental Health Ambassador at Asda, bumped into 86-year-old Patrick in Leeds city centre and they started chatting. When Patrick asked Emily if she had time for a coffee she said she did – and they ended up spending two hours chatting together.
Afterwards Emily posted on LinkedIn about their chance meeting, saying: "This is Patrick. He is 86 and he stopped me in Leeds yesterday to ask me how my day was. He then asked if by any chance I had time for a coffee. Meetings cancelled – I spent 2 hours with the most wonderful man.
