We sold the children's old beds on eBay as part of the house emptying process. One went to Ali, a cheerful muslim from Ilford who came round with son and sister-in-law to pick up the bed.
Not only did our sons immediately head for the garden to play cricket but Ali picked up his electric drill and fixed our wonky kitchen cabinet door. He then refused to take any type of payment.
A fine man and a testament to the social power of eBay.
