In a heartwarming act of kindness, Coldplay’s very own Chris Martin surprised a devoted fan by giving her a ride to BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Luton. Saundra Glenn, a 64-year-old with osteoarthritis, found herself struggling to make her way to the festival’s entrance due to her hip, knee, and ankle issues.

As Saundra was contemplating heading back home, she was approached by Chris Martin in his sleek black Mercedes people carrier. With a simple invitation to hop in, Chris whisked Saundra into the festival, chatting with her along the way about her community work in Luton.

Saundra shared her delightful encounter with Chris on social media, expressing her admiration for his down-to-earth nature and genuine kindness. She even managed to snap a quick selfie with the Coldplay frontman during their time together.
