During this unprecedented time, it has been more important than ever to reach out to those in our community – and one little girl has inspired millions with her beautiful new friendship with her deaf delivery man, Tim
Eight-year-old Tallulah from Ashton-Under-Lyne in Manchester first shared a lovely gesture of drawing him a picture of a rainbow which said ‘thank you’, which he put up in his delivery van.
However, for this little girl, she wanted to go a step further by learning to communicate with Tim in sign language to wish him well when she sees him.
In a now-viral video on Twitter posted by her mum, Amy Roberts, Tallulah can be seen signing, “Have a good day” to Tim which puts a massive smile on his face.
He returns the favour, signing “good morning, have a good day,” and she picks it up straight away.

“This is our @Hermesparcels delivery man, we see him 1 or 2 times a week, start of lockdown Tallulah drew him a #thankyou, he still has it proudly on show in his van,” Roberts said, along with the video.
“They have built up quite a friendship over these last few weeks #proudmum.
“In a world where you can be anything #BeKind.”
Twitter users were in awe of the video, with some suggesting that sign language should be taught at school.
