  • Richard gave up his time to come and search for it for me. He is an amazingly generous person (2018)


    We can’t thank Richard enough for coming all the way from Swanage to find my engagement ring for us.

    I was absolutely devastated when it had slipped from my hand and we were unable to see it anywhere.

    I am so unbelievably grateful that Richard gave up his time to come and search for it for me.

    He is an amazingly generous person, both with his time and the fact the only payment he wanted was a donation to charity which we gladly made. Thank you so much!

  • Thank You Richard – MY SAVIOUR! (2017)


    Thank You Richard – MY SAVIOUR! Amidst the moment when i was feeling hopeless, useless, devastated i found this saviour who was so spontaneous that he reached the desired venue within 2 hours with all the equipments. He didn’t show any hesitation to jump into the cold water and look for the ring.. He kept us optimistic and we just believed in him and YES HE FOUND IT!!!!

    Without him I would be still living with a deep regret.. A man i would never forget in my life and will always be grateful for..

    Thank you Richard, God bless you & Will see you at my wedding!

  • I can't thank you enough and am so impressed that you were able to come down that same day and put me out of my misery. (2014)


    Dear Richard,

    Thank you again for your help on Saturday. I will donate £50 plus gift aid to the Dorset air ambulance today.

    For your blog, the story is that we were just spending a family day at the beach and I took the ring off to suncream my boy. I've done it a thousand times because I don't like the cream getting in between the rocks.

    Popped the ring in my pocket then got all rushed into changing to get into the sea and that was when the ring flew out into the sand. It was our 12th wedding anniversary the following day so it was going to be super sad if I lost it.

    I can't thank you enough and am so impressed that you were able to come down that same day and put me out of my misery.

    Wishing you all the very best with your ring finding in the future.

    Best wishes,

    Susan Hopcraft
