According to Wigan Today, a local events organiser offered to pay for the parts for her own car to be repaired, and a garage, Body Shop Golborne, will perform the work for free.

Meanwhile, friends, family and neighbours have been dropping off groceries and treats at her front door as she self-isolates following her encounter with the pensioner.

She told the programme: “It’s been so overwhelming, I’ve had so many lovely messages and comments.

She also received a personal message from boxer Anthony Joshua, who said on the programme: “You definitely showed compassion, you definitely showed bravery, so I want to congratulate you on that.

“Stay safe, and what you guys in the NHS are doing is unbelievable. Keep it going – you guys are the unsung heroes.”

He reportedly told her he had no family except for a son who he had not spoken to in years.

She told BBC News: “The man was so grateful that I stayed with him and kept squeezing my hand and pulling it close to him.”
