Lillyan Williams

Act of kindness earns grocery packer a promotion

A simple act of kindness to a disabled and elderly man has led to 19-year-old Lillyan Williams being hailed a hero who citizens should try to emulate.

Williams, a part-time employee of JTA Supermarket at Cross Crossing, San Fernando, was photographed on Monday feeding a wheelchair-bound customer, known only as Mr Deoraj from Tarouba. But that was not all, Williams had earlier picked up all the items on Deoraj’s grocery list and even waited with him outside the supermarket until he was picked up by the Elderly and Differently-abled Mobile (ELDAMO) bus service to take him home.
