A smile on a young face is my moment I want to share with you from today.

I work as a volunteer in A & E and you see all sorts. The thing that really struck me this morning was this 17 year old girl who had come in having taken an overdose. I really wanted to help her. I just said ‘you need some TLC [tender loving care] don’t you.’ She gave me a big smile. There’s not much I can do but I was glad that I helped her smile.
