Card addressed with 'somewhere at top of town' still makes it to its destination

After moving house, Tracey Fitzharris hadn’t got round to giving her friends her new address.

But somehow, when a friend in Scotland decided to try sending her a birthday card anyway, it still got to her.

The friend included the only information she knew – Tracey’s name, that she lived in St Ives, Cornwall (a town with a population of 11,000) and it was ‘somewhere at the top of town’

Tracey, 43, was gobsmacked when it actually arrived and shared the story online.

Speaking to local news outlet CornwallLive, Tracey: ‘Just before Christmas my friend moved to Duror a few miles down the road (from Ballachulish).

‘So I got her new address and sent her a Christmas card. She rang me up and said she felt bad because she hadn’t sent any and could I send my address.

‘I laughed and said no, I didn’t need a card and FaceTime and wine is much better and our only option nowadays.’

Then, two days before her birthday, Tracey had spinal surgery at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth which was delayed due to Covid.

On the day itself, Tracey spent most of the day sleeping and knowing she wasn’t feeling great, her friend wanted to send her something to cheer her up.

Tracey said: ‘I hadn’t reminded any of my friends about my birthday, but because she knew I wasn’t great she decided to send me a card and literally thought ‘bugger it’ and sent it without an address.

‘Anyway it arrived yesterday and it made me smile, she was amazed it actually arrived. We spent some time laughing about it on the phone yesterday. She didn’t tell me she sent it in case it didn’t arrive.

‘I’m glad she put a stamp on it.’

On the back of the envelope, the friend had written ‘big love to the postie X’.

The card arrived with Tracey on Thursday, February 4.
