OK, I admit to normally being a cynic about most things but I seriously have to give this guy all due respect.

I'd like to think that I'd do something similar but....

There's not many that would have done or do that.

My hats off to him.

shows there are still some good people out there

Wow, there are still some nice people in the world, good for him.

I hope I do no not sound pompous when I say it certainly restores one's faith in young adults.

Such a kind hearted individual.

Agree with the above

but I suspect that any compensation the victim may be due from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority will be reduced because of this generous act.

10k in the pocket of a 22 year old would have meant some great nights out and a few weeks in San Antonio, That makes it a very nice gesture and as you say greatest respect to him.

There's hope for us yet.

there are undoubtedly lots of people like this out there - maybe their generosity isn't on quite this scale, but people indulge in acts of consideration and kindness all the time.

The unfortunate thing is that bad news tends to make better copy than good news, so we don't get to hear about most of what goes on - we just get stories about drunken yobs and people who mug old ladies.

Look deep into the fabric of our society and you'll find an enormous amount of good being done by ordinary people to benefit their fellow citizens without any expectation of praise or reward. It largely goes unsung, but it's there.
