Ellie is Trying to Find ‘Tom’. Tom’s Kindness ‘restored her faith in humanity’

A woman is searching for the good Samaritan who carried her off a train, called the emergency services, bought her a coffee and paid for a taxi home when she had a seizure.

Ellie Farnfield, 27, was travelling from Redhill in Surrey to London Victoria on Wednesday when she fell unconscious.

She came around on the floor to find the coffee, a £10 note and the handwritten letter from a man giving his name only as Tom.

“I hope by the time you read this you are feeling better,” the note said. 

“You had a seizure on the train and I took you off.

“You didn’t hit your head but I may have hurt your leg as I walked on it before realising you were on the floor having a fit! Sorry!

“I’m also sorry I can’t stay with you now but here is a coffee to perk you up later and £10 to make sure you get a taxi home.

“Sorry I don’t have any more money so I hope you don’t live far away.

“I’ve contacted people from your phone and medical help is on its way and you’re with train staff.

“Wishing you all the best and a quick recovery. Love Tom.”

Ms Farnfield, an acupuncture student, shared a photo of the note on Facebook and started the #findtraintom campaign to thank the kind stranger.

“Faith restored in humanity in London last night. Thank you so much to everyone who helped me – especially ‘Tom’,”

she wrote in the post that was shared more than 1,000 times.

Ms Farnfield said she was left feeling “quite emotional” by the mystery man’s generosity and wanted to thank him for his help, as well as returning his money.

“Anything could have happened. I could have hit my head, fallen off the train, been there for a long time,” she added.

“There is something really lovely about the kindness of a stranger. If I meet him, drinks are on me.”

As the campaign to find the elusive Tom continued to spread, she wrote on Facebook that she was “overwhelmed” by the response, adding:

“Fingers crossed we find him.”
