Postie goes above and beyond for self-isolating nan in need after finding note

A postie has been praised for going above and beyond for a woman who was self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kirsten Sinnamon, 47, explained that after visiting her grandchild in Melbourne, Australia, she was forced to stay home for two weeks to comply with Covid-19 restrictions.

During this time, she’d missed a delivery that needed to be rescheduled.

But as strict self-isolation rules banned the Kirsten from going to the post office, and she couldn’t get through to the local depot on the phone, she decided to write the postie a note on the off chance she’d be able to help.

The note read: “Dear postie. We’re stuck in iso after visiting first grandbaby in Melbourne last week.

“Is it possible to re-deliver our parcel, please? We’ll be here all week. Understand if it’s not possible.”

Luckily enough for Kirsten, the postie was able to sort out another delivery, and even went as far as to ring the self-isolating family to reassure them that their post was on its way.

Kirsten shared the touching gesture in The Kindness Pandemic group on Facebook where she said she was “over the moon with appreciation.”

The post read: “Our Postie (Lisa – who we’ve never met) phoned me from the mail centre (because she had to go back there to get the parcel to find my phone no) just to check if we needed it redirected to a different address.

“When I explained the home isolation situation she came back and delivered it this afternoon.”

She added: “We would have been completely happy if they’d just been able to hold it for the week until we’re allowed out to collect, or even delivered the next day.

“We’re over the moon with appreciation to receive it today!”

The post quickly racked up thousands of likes and comments from people praising the kind gesture.
