Harry, 11, so grateful for power, he made Ergon crews a card

THE KINDNESS of one young local boy has pulled at the heart strings of the Central Queensland community.

On Wednesday afternoon, 11-year-old Harry Marshall, who is autistic, was so happy to see Ergon Energy staff working to restore power to his area; he went out of his way to thank them.

Harry, who has a heart of gold, made the Ergon workers a lovely card thanking them for their hard work on behalf of everyone in the wider Rockhampton community.

When Harry gave the workers the card, they were deeply touched by the gesture.

Harry's proud mum posted a photo of Harry with two Ergon workers and his card on Facebook where he earned praise from many members of the community.

The children of the Capricorn Coast are also doing their bit to thank volunteers, Ergon and emergency service workers.

Children are invited to leave pictures, notes or any other message to those working to get the community back on their feet on a pin board which at Yeppoon Town Hall.
