Sylvie Hampton a wound care consultant nurse was in Glasgow to train Marie Curie nurses, but lost her cards and had no cash until she was saved by a generous taxi driver.
Glasgow's motto is 'People Make Glasgow' and one woman who travelled to the city recently for business believes this to be true.
Sylvie Hampton, a wound care consultant Nurse, was in Glasgow to train Marie Curie nurses in palliative wound care.
But when she landed at Glasgow Airport from Gatwick earlier this week she realised her cards were missing and she had no cash on her.
"I thought about wailing in the centre of the airport but resorted to pleading instead. All to no avail," Sylvie told Glasgow Live .
"I knew my bag was on its side in the car so presumed the cards had fallen into the well of the car.
"My hotel was booked and paid for in Glasgow but I had to get from the airport to the hotel so I rang a taxi company and, as I had credit card details, I was able to pay over the phone."
The first hurdle was over for Sylvie as she had a ride to her hotel and she would worry about the next few days of her trip with no money later.
However she was saved from any anxiety as taxi driver, Gerry from Glasgow Airport Taxis, met Sylvie and after hearing her story told her he would pick her up and drop her off from the Marie Curie centre the next day.
Sylvie who lives down south, was so touched by his generosity and thankful she didn't have to walk seven miles to and from the Marie Curie Centre each day.
Sylvie added: "This story restores faith in human beings when you meet a stranger who is so kind and rescues you at your lowest point.
"I have never known such kindness and I would love to thank him personally.
"Gerry was unbelievably kind and I could definitely not have coped without his incredible kindness and generosity of spirit."
Gerry dropped Sylvie to work each day and also took her to the airport at the end of her trip - all free of charge.
