Taryn Lambert forgot her work laptop in her trolley at Table Bay Mall in Cape Town and thought for sure it was gone forever but thankfully, two men found it and kept it safe until she could fetch it.


Cape Town, South Africa – Taryn Lambert had her spirits lifted by two men who work at her local shopping mall. She was rushing out of the mall and forgot her laptop in the trolley.

She was distressed by her forgetfulness as her laptop had everything she needed to run her business. With it lost, she would struggle to get things sorted out.

Thankfully, two men at the mall saw the laptop in the trolley and took it to the centre management for safe keeping. She went to check if the laptop had been handed in but had little hope. When she asked, she was surprised they said they had it.

“I (stupidly) left my laptop in a trolly at Table Bay Mall which basically has my entire business on it and these HEROS found it and safely passed it on to management. I don’t have the words to explain how grateful I am. Such beautiful humans. Hope you look after these guys Table Bay Mall.”

Taryn met up with the men that saved her laptop and kept it safe. She was so blown away by the efforts she wanted to acknowledge them on social media.

“These guys were absolutely incredible and so humble. I honestly could not believe I got my laptop back.” – Taryn Lambert
