Pride of Guernsey: Kenieta Domaille
ONE Friday morning Kenieta Domaille was driving to work when she noticed a car stopped at the side of the road. All other drivers drove on, but Kenieta stopped to enquire if the driver was OK. It was an elderly gentleman who had broken down while on his way to a very important hospital appointment.
Kenieta arranged a recovery truck to collect the car, waited until it arrived, phoned the hospital to explain what had happened and waited with the gentleman until the car was picked up. She then drove this gentleman to his appointment, again waited with him and took him home.
This event prompted TrustFord’s Mark Munson to nominate Ms Domaille for the Specsavers-sponsored award.
‘We all have busy lives, but when someone in need required her help, she was there,’ he said.
‘She exceeded what most people would do, proven by the amount of other cars that drove by the stranded car to carry on with their normal morning routine.’
He added: ‘Through all the bad things that you read about in the press and on social media about what human beings do to each other in the UK and the rest of the world, Kenieta’s actions restore your faith in humanity.
‘It makes you realise there are very nice people in our community that truly care, not just about their family and friends, but genuinely care about others that share this wonderful island too.
‘It was such a lovely, selfless deed she did, for somebody she didn’t know.’
