Heartwarming! Co-workers buy car for woman who walked 40 minutes to work every day

- Linda Walton had to walk 40 minutes to the bus stop every day

- Her bus ride to work took another two hours

- Her co-workers fundraised to buy her a car to shorten her journey to just 25 minutes

A woman who spent up to six hours commuting to and from work every day was overwhelmed with joy when co-workers bought her a car recently.

Linda Walton, from Tennessee, US, used to walk 40 minutes just to get to the bus stop. She spent another two hours on the bus to work. Commuting back home was the same long journey.

Her boss Krissy Marcellini Tammaro learned of her ordeal and decided to help. She teamed up with her co-workers to fundraise money to buy her a used car.

They also bought new tires, changed the car's oil, paid one month of insurance and bought petrol vouchers worth $100 (Ghc421).

Walton now will spend only 25 minutes commuting to work. In an emotional video shared online, she is seen crying tears of joy as her colleagues present her with the car.

In an interview, Tammaro said: "She is a great human being. If you were to know Miss Linda, you would want to do this for her. She has a huge heart. The determination she has to come to work — who wouldn't want to reward someone like that?"
