John Lewis Bauble Apology: #FindFaith Is Found - But She's Too Shy To Talk

John Lewis bauble apology: #findFaith is found - but she's too shy to talk

The five-year-old who captured the spirit of Christmas after she wrote a note of apology to John Lewis for accidentally breaking a tree decoration has been found.

But 'Faith' is too shy to step into the spotlight to receive the praise that the nation has heaped on her ever since we heard about her lovely gesture.

Faith attached two pounds to a handwritten letter, which was sent to the department store's Cambridge branch after breaking the bauble.

Store manager Dominic Joyce posted an image of her apology on Twitter, sparking a national search for its author.

Faith was eventually tracked down after Twitter users shared the image hundreds of times using the hashtag #findfaith.

But a John Lewis spokeswoman said Faith had been found but was 'very shy' and would not be taking part in media interviews.

In the letter, Faith described breaking the bauble during a visit on Saturday.

It read: "To John Lewis Cambridge, I'm sorry I broke a Christmas bauble on Saturday. It cost two pounds. Here is the money for it. Sorry again. Faith, aged 5."

Mr Joyce, who shared the original letter, said: "We'd like to thank everyone who has helped us to find Faith, the response has been overwhelming.

"We wanted to have the opportunity to say thank you and we have now been able to do that. We hope Faith and her family have a very merry Christmas."
