Woman with MS who fell over while walking praises Broadwater pupils who helped her



























Year 8 pupils Ted, Toshi, Sean, Spike and Toby from Broadwater School called to Barbara Keene asking if she needed help and then came to her aid after she lost her footing walking in Broadwater Park

Pupils who helped a lady with multiple sclerosis when she fell have been praised for their actions.

Barbara Keene was walking her dog in Broadwater Park when she fell as she was walking down towards the lake from the tennis courts.

She said: “When I fall I find it very difficult to get up without help or something to pull myself up on.

“There were about five Broadwater boys walking towards school. They were a little way away but when they saw I was in difficulties one called out ‘do you want help’.

“They all came over and helped me up.

“I was very grateful but also very impressed as I know young people can be sometimes embarrassed and would rather pretend they haven’t seen than offer help.”

Mrs Keene got in touch with the school to thank the Year 8 pupils Ted, Toshi, Sean, Spike and Toby.

She said: “Young people often get bad press and most of the time they often don’t deserve it.”

Chris Lee, headteacher of Broadwater School, said he was pleased that the values taught in the school were being enacted in the local community.

He said: “Mrs Keene is correct in how young people are often viewed in a negative way.

“The reality is that the vast majority of young people have strong values of respect towards others and I am proud and privileged to be able to play a role in guiding them to becoming excellent citizens. Our future is in good hands with young people such as those that helped Mrs Keene.”
