We all need a shoulder to cry on and people who are willing to listen when times are tough. And that’s exactly what Pauline Fauset needed when her father George Wyles was diagnosed with cancer.

Thankfully, Chandrakant Patel and his wife Jyotika, who run Venthams Chemist, in Copnor Road, Copnor, were there to help.

When George found it difficult to get out and about, the couple made sure his medication was delivered to his house. And on days when Pauline popped into the store for supplies, they took the time to chat to her and make her feel better.

After George, 89, died in March last year, Pauline was faced with the challenge of looking after her mum Alma Wyles, 88, who suffers from a heart condition and dementia. But the Patels have been a constant source of support.

Pauline, of North End, says: ‘They are amazing really. They’re willing to help anyone and make their life easier.’
