A GOOD Samaritan gave a “homeless man” his bank card and PIN and told him to take out £20 for himself in a heartwarming video.
The man, with a beard and jacket, returns with a receipt and £20 before handing the owner back his card during the clip filmed outside Harry’s Bar Restaurant in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
The touching video was taken by Jack Fada, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, as he took a break from his job as a builder, doing work on a nearby nightclub.
The 27-year-old uploaded the footage to Facebook yesterday, leaving viewers in awe at the man’s kindness, with over 115,000 users having seen the footage.
Above the video, he posted the caption: “Homeless man goes up to a group of people and asks for money.
“The bloke gives him his bank card and PIN number and tells him to take 20 quid for himself.
“Don’t dare tell me Newcastle isn’t the greatest place on Earth.”
After he returns the bank card the two share a warm handshake, and the bearded man begins walking away.
He then turns round briefly, and points to the man who just gave him the money.
The seated man then points back, and the two share a friendly exchange, before the bearded man leaves and the clip ends.
Facebook users who commented commended the man at the restaurant’s kind gesture.
Loreto Surridge wrote: “Still some very nice gentlemen. Well done.”
Claire Walmsley commented: “Aw top bloke and even better top bloke for bringing bank card back.”
Jack revealed he captured the clip in August last year, but wanted to share the stranger’s kindness on social media

He said: “I was working as a builder demolitioning the old Legends nightclub which is downstairs to Harry’s bar.
“I would go outside now and then for fresh air and a cuppa and I see loads of homeless people sleeping and begging, so when I saw what was happening I started to record.
“I’ve worked all over the country and I don’t think anyone is as kind as us Geordies.”
