Rice, tomato and seafood might not sound like much, but to Garry Wylie it was everything. 

Mr Wylie returned to his Prospect home from his second admission to palliative care, with one wish – to have paella for dinner.  His wife, Kim, a self-confessed “simple” cook despaired. Through Google, she found Edrick Corban-Banks from Casa Paella and emailed him asking for some cooking tips.

“He phoned and said he’d come and cook dinner and said he would bring everything at no cost. He had the whole car loaded up and arrived at our door with a massive paella pan,” Mrs Wylie said.

“For Garry, it was an unbelievable experience to eat authentic paella.” Mrs Wylie wished to thank Edrick for his incredible act of kindness.
