A WOMAN has rewarded a South Lakeland boy with a seasonal gift after he helped her when she took a tumble and broke her wrist.

Lisa Buckley, who lives in Morecambe, was walking on The Helm with her dog when she fell over and sustained the fracture.

It was then that 13-year-old Rohan Malin, a pupil at Kirkbie Kendal School, Kendal, rode up to her on his bike and asked her if she needed help.

"I was in a bit of a shock but he knew just what to do, and went to get his mum," said Ms Buckley.

Rohan cycled back to his home in Oxenholme and alerted his family to Ms Buckley's plight.

His mother Jo Malin took care of her dog, while her partner, Mark Borthwick, drove Ms Buckley to Westmorland General Hospital, Kendal, and parked her car outside their house to prevent it being vandalised.

Last Sunday Ms Buckley travelled back to Oxenholme to present Rohan with an Easter egg.

"I just wanted to thank Rohan and his family properly. He's such a kind boy, and he was so nice to me," she said.

"It was nice to see Lisa, we were wondering whether she was all right," Jo said. "I'm very proud of Rohan, he's a kind lad who cares about other people."

Rohan said: "I just did it without thinking, it's just how I was brought up. If I can help other people, I do it."

Another boy also helped Lisa on the day of her accident by calling an ambulance.

She said: "We don't know who he is, but I want to thank him as well. Maybe this will reach him."
