Barbara Pumford spent more than two months in hospital after the fall at the Coronation Green bus stop on February 26.
She said: "I have no idea how I fell but I ended up trapped between the kerb and a bus – in agony!"I had fallen on a very cold February day after spending a lovely time having lunch with my daughter, who lives in Brighton.
"Immediately, I was surrounded by people putting warm things on me as I was shivering with cold. One woman held my hand and said she would stay and see me in the ambulance.
"Such wonderful people – thank you!"
Barbara was taken to Worthing Hospital for a month, then Arundel and District Community Hospital for short-term rehabilitation, and is now pleased to be back in her own home.
She added: "I have met love and kindness all the way and am so very grateful for it. If you are one of the people who came to me on February 26, I want you to know that I have been so comforted by you all and want you to know it.
"There is still goodness and love around, sometimes hidden."
