Tom Shepherd (aged 84) fell outside Boyes in Melton on December 11 and was helped by many people while he waited for an ambulance.
He had broken his elbow so was in hospital for the two weeks leading up to Christmas but is recovering well at home now.
All his family want to send a big thank you to the kind people, including a woman who called at their home to pick up medicines and inform his wife, Janet.
They all put themselves out enormously and made such a difference to Tom during this traumatic accident. Thanks so much.
