Heart-warming footage shows a ‘homeless man’ returning a bank card to a customer sitting outside a bar – after the Samaritan gave him his PIN and told him to withdraw £20 for himself. 

The clip begins with a view of a man sitting at an outside table at Harry’s Bar and Restaurant, on Grey Street, Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

A bearded man wearing a jacket and jogging bottoms approaches the customer, who then gives him a thumbs-up.

The ‘homeless’ man, who appears to be in his twenties – and may be called ‘Colin’, according to Facebook comments – hands him a piece of paper and mentions the word ‘receipt’.

It is believed the bearded man withdrew the £20 from an ATM outside a Co-Op bank on the opposite side of the road, about one minute’s walk away

The punter takes the receipt, while the bearded man shows him the £20 he took out.

It is believed he made the withdrawal from an ATM outside a Co-Op bank on the opposite side of the road, about one minute’s walk away. 

The two share a warm handshake, and the bearded man begins to leave – briefly turning around to point at the generous individual.

The seated man points back, and the two share a friendly exchange, before ‘Colin’ leaves and the clip ends.

The video was shot by Jack Fada, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, as he took a break from his job as a builder, doing work on a nearby nightclub.

Speaking today, Jack revealed he captured the clip in August last year, but wanted to share the stranger’s kindness on social media

He said: ‘I was working as a builder demolitioning the old Legends nightclub which is downstairs to Harry’s bar.

‘I would go outside now and then for fresh air and a cuppa and I see loads of homeless people sleeping and begging, so when I saw what was happening, I started to record.

‘I’ve worked all over the country and I don’t think anyone is as kind as us Geordies.’
