“Geordies are the best” Kind stranger hands over bank card to “homeless man” so he can withdraw £20


HEART-WARMING video shows a samaritan giving a “homeless man” his bank card, to withdraw money out for himself.

The man, with a beard and jacket, can be seen returning to a helpful punter with his receipt and £20 after being given the card along with its PIN number.

He then shakes the hand of the man, who is sat outside at Harry’s Bar and Restaurant, on Grey Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

The clip was taken by Jack Fada, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, as he took a break from his job as a builder, doing work on a nearby nightclub.

The 27-year-old uploaded the footage to Facebook yesterday, leaving viewers in awe at the man’s kindness, with over 115,000 users having seen the footage.

Above the video, he posted the caption: “Homeless man goes up to a group of people and asks for money.

“The bloke gives him his bank card and PIN number and tells him to take 20 quid for himself.

“Don’t dare tell me Newcastle isn’t the greatest place on Earth.”

The clip begins with a view of a man sitting at an outside table at Harry’s Bar and Restaurant.

A man with a beard, jacket, and jogger bottoms approaches the man, who subsequently gives him a thumbs up.

The clip was taken by Jack Fada, 27, who was working as a builder nearby.

The bearded man hands the other man a piece of paper, mentioning the word “receipt”.

The seated man takes the receipt, while the bearded man shows him the £20 he took out.

The two then share a warm handshake, and the bearded man begins walking away to leave.

He then turns round briefly, and points to the man who just gave him him the money.

The seated man then points back, and the two share a friendly exchange, before the bearded man leaves and the clip ends.

The “homeless man” shows him the £20 as he hands back the receipt.

Facebook users who commented commended the man at the restaurant’s kind gesture.

Loreto Surridge wrote: “Still some very nice gentlemen. Well done.”

Claire Walmsley commented: “Aw top bloke and even better top bloke for bringing bank card back.”

Leslie Appleton said: “Renewed my faith in human nature after all the bad things that are happening up and down the country.”

Stacey Earl-Brown wrote: “What an absolute legend.”

Marie Henderson added: “Wow what a legend. Geordies are the best.”

The two share a warm handshake before the man departs.

Speaking today, Jack revealed he captured the clip in August last year, but wanted to share the stranger’s kindness on social media

He said: “I was working as a builder demolitioning the old Legends nightclub which is downstairs to Harry’s bar.

“I would go outside now and then for fresh air and a cuppa and I see loads of homeless people sleeping and begging, so when I saw what was happening I started to record.

“I’ve worked all over the country and I don’t think anyone is as kind as us Geordies.”
