A MAN has been reunited with his wedding ring after it was lost when he was clearing snow off his car.
Gareth Johns, 34, lost the ring in the St Elizabeth Hospice car park, in Ipswich, but after an appeal a couple of people armed with metal detectors ventured out into the cold.
Ian Roberts, 81, of Quebec Drive, Kesgrave, and Gerry Keeler, 77, of Lulworth Avenue, Ipswich, found the ring within a minute of searching.
Jane Petit, chief executive of St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “Stories like this serve to remind us how important the support of the community is to all those who use the services of the hospice. I am extremely thankful to both Ian and Gerry for taking time out of their days to come and help us find Mr Johns’ ring.”
Mr Johns’ brother Andrew, 44, contacted BBC Radio Suffolk to make the appeal for people to come forward.
