Rod Stewart has left a student nurse in Wales stunned after sending her a $6,000 (£5,000) cheque to help her out following a serious battle with coronavirus.
The Maggie May hitmaker was so moved by video footage of Natasha Jenkins reuniting with her three children following a five-week stay at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, where she had spent 22 days on a ventilator, he decided to get in touch with the COVID-19 survivor so he could send her a gift.(music-news.com)
“My house phone rang one day, and it was a lady saying, ‘I’m calling on behalf of Rod Stewart,'” the 35 year old told People.com.
“She said, ‘I’m from his PR company. He’d like to send you something.'”
Jenkins was pleasantly surprised to receive the call, and two days later, she received an envelope containing a signed promotional picture of the veteran rocker – and the generous gift.
Jenkins, who is continuing her recovery from the virus at home, plans to hold on to the extra funds unless absolutely necessary.
“The money is just going to be put away until I need it really,” she said. “There’s not too much I can do at the moment but it’s just one less worry isn’t it, the money issues and everything. It’s just so sweet.”
Jenkins also shared a snap of the unexpected present on Facebook, showing off Stewart’s personal, handwritten note, which read, “Hi Natasha, a small gift to help you through rough times”.
It was captioned, “So the post has just been delivered. I’ve had a signed poster from Mr Rod Stewart…. And this….. I am absolutely gobsmacked and cannot believe how nice and generous he is.”
Stewart has yet to comment on the act of generosity.
Rod Stewart is wisely using his time at home to sort things out his garage, but he might regret his choice of outfit to do it in. The rocker opted for all-white clothes as he got cracking with the potentially dirty task. In a series of photos posted on Instagram, the singer shared he was using his time at home to get around to some tasks that had been left by the wayside. ‘Taking this time at home to have a clear out of the garage,’ Sir Rod captioned the pics.(Mailonline)
Never one to forgo his stylish ways, Rod opted to wear an all-white ensemble that teamed a tank top with white-washed denim jeans.
He shrugged on a jumper over his shoulders, and completed the look by wearing a pair of white trainers.
Hollywood celebrities are certainly feeling the pinch after letting their housekeeping staff go due to coronavirus.
And on Tuesday, actress Naomi Watts reached breaking point after her printer, vacuum cleaner and dishwater all broke down.
The 51-year-old star – who has been self-isolating inside her Los Angeles mansion for three weeks – shared her anguish with fans by uploading a slow-motion video of herself screaming hysterically.
Naomi violently flung her head backwards and forwards in a fit of rage as the sound of a lion’s roar played in the background.
