Glenda's loved leadlights returned

GLENDA Yates treasures the leadlight panels her husband, Ken, made for her many years ago.

The three large panels were designed by Glenda and when her husband turned her designs into reality, she knew she would treasure them for ever.

That is why she was heart-broken when she found out friends had accidentally delivered the panels to Pialba’s St Vincent de Paul Society when they were helping Glenda clear out unwanted goods from her former Scarness home.

Ms Yates has now moved to Caloundra because of a family illness and was worried she would never see the leadlights again.

That was before the helpful staff at the Pialba St Vincent de Paul store got involved.

Lynn Gately knew the woman who had bought the panels and was soon able to catch up with her and tell her about the mix up.

The woman was happy to return the leadlight panels and, as a token of her appreciation, Glenda presented the woman with a gift certificate.

“We’re just so elated they have been returned – we’re so happy to have them back,” Glenda said.

“It’s good to know there are still kind, compassionate people out there.

“We just want to say a huge thank you to the lady who returned them – she doesn’t know what her good deed has done.”
