IT WAS just a regular day at the shops for Roy Gettings when he was approached by a stranger who left her mark on him.

A young woman walked up to the pensioner who was suffering a headache at the time.

"She walked up to me, put her hand on my head and said all my aches and pains will go away," Mr Gettings said.

"While she was talking my headache seemed to go and then she gave me a small gift."

Mr Gettings opened the envelope to discover a $50 Woolworths voucher.

"Made my day, she did, I was very shocked," Mr Gettings said.

"It's very rare you'll get a young person do that and, to give me that, I thought it was very nice."

The girl, around 20-years-old, disappeared before Mr Gettings could stop her.

"I don't know her name - she didn't even wait for me to say thank you and she just went off," Mr Gettings said.

"I've never won anything before and this is one of the best things that's happened to me."

Mr Gettings said the girl was attractive, around five foot tall with a mix of brunette and blonde hair.

After suffering from arthritis and an inability to walk far, kindness was something he said he needed in his life.

"I'd really like to meet her and say thank you," he said.

"I'm 83-years-old and I believe in angels, but I don't know why - I'm like a kid."

Mr Gettings said he would spend the voucher on more fans to put around his house for the summertime.
