In a world filled with Islamophobia and what seems like a never-ending barrage of hate towards Muslims on social media, TV and the media, one must remember that there are many good souls out there in the community. One of these is Trent Sullivan.   

Tamana Daqiq, Principal Solicitor at Hikma Legal found herself in a bit of a bind as her car had run out of petrol on the side of the road on 28 April at Windsor Road in Westmead. Trent volunteered to help out in an extraordinary manner.

Tamana wrote online “Run out of petrol on the way to work. This guy pushed my car into his driveway, filled it with enough petrol to get me to the station and wiped my car clean at the end! Hope in humanity restored.  If you need a vending machine for your business, call him!”

We contacted Trent who reflected “I believe the more we can show kindness and care for each other, the better society will be”. It’s a reminder that a great majority of members in our Australian community are good, fair people and no matter the climate, to remember to never lose hope in random acts of kindness and to ensure we pass it on to others.

Trent Sullivan owns a vending machine business called Royal Vending. Tamana’s post on Facebook even generated potential business opportunity for him. Trent’s character is a great representative of this business.

As William Shakespeare said, ‘How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.’
