A kind-hearted security guard is proving chivalry is not dead by helping elderly shoppers get home safely.

Brendan Rose, who works at Sainsbury’s in St Dunstan’s in Canterbury, regularly walks frail customers home from the store with their shopping, but his goodwill only came to light when he was spotted by a passer-by assisting an elderly lady to her care home.

The 30-year-old was tracked down by KentOnline, and we told him how his actions have won him huge praise on social media.

But he insists he is doing nothing extraordinary and that this type of behaviour should be the norm.

“I was brought up respecting my elders and helping anyone who needs it, even if this is just helping someone cross the road,” he said.

Mr Rose has worked for security company Mitie for two years, and can be seen at the Sainsbury’s store four to five days a week.

He says he regularly walks home elderly ladies, including one 96-year-old who often ventures out after dark.

“She comes out late at night sometimes – she once came out at 10pm not realising how late it was, thinking the butcher would be open – so I walk her home, make sure she gets back safely,” he said. “The lady I was seen walking home is a regular and I walk her back to her care home all the time.

She’s a little unstable on her feet. I walk her over the rail tracks and down the alleyway. I just make sure she gets back OK.

“She comes in almost every shift I work.
