Dear UKCH, This is a copy of my thank you letter to Twickenham Police Station in November 2012 when they looked after my then 10 year old daughter who has autism when her father collapsed (and later died) in Waitrose, East Sheen.

On Sunday 25th November, you very kindly looked after my 10yr old daughter, Evie, after her daddy collapsed in Waitrose in East Sheen.

I just wanted to give you my heartfelt thanks for entertaining her and keeping her safe for me until a family friend could collect her. She has high functioning autism, and with all the change, unexpected happenings, & sensory overload, without very sensitive interaction, she would have become extremely distressed.

While my husband’s passing will never be anything but sad, Evie does have some happy memories of her visit to Twickenham Police Station.
Sadly, Evie isn’t interested in joining the Met Police force, but only because, she says, “Jail is smelly.” Now there’s gratitude for you.

Special thanks to Office “Luke” (who I am told can explain why Evie wants a pair of Barbie handcuffs for christmas), and to everyone who assisted, both with Evie and for arranging for me to be escorted to Hammersmith Hospital.

Sincerely,

Deborah
