THE REDDITCH woman who was given £1,000 by the Anonymous Donor has now got a new car so she take her son to his special needs school.

Tracie McDonough, of Barnwood Close, in Church Hill, was speechless when the Standard told her the mystery hero had donated the money to get her back on the road and she has now said she can not thank him enough for allowing her to buy the Ford.

Tracie was involved in a car crash with her children last month which saw her car written off and her 15-year-old son Peter suffer a serious head wound which has still not healed.

“It is all just so amazing. Peter’s school is all the way in Bromsgrove and because he doesn’t trust anyone he just can not go on public transport so it was really difficult after the accident.

“When something like this happens it is just incredible and restores your faith in people.

“I just cannot thank him enough and wish I knew who he was so I could thank him properly in person.”

Tracie’s other son George also goes to school in Beoley making it even more difficult to get the youngsters to their schools on time.

She added: “Other than the school run it is great to have the car in time for summer holidays because otherwise we would be stuck indoors a lot and Peter would just find that really hard. He needs to be out and about.”

l Meanwhile new life has also been breathed into Redditch’s own Carer’s Careline which was in danger of closing before benefiting from a donation from the Anonymous Donor while the third beneficiary, Redditch Nightstop, continues its vital work with young people at risk of homelessness.
