Freddie saved his earnings but announced one day to his mother

“Freddie saved his earnings but announced one day to his mother that he wanted to give most of it away. She had been depositing the cash on his behalf at the Post Office and he had accumulated about £70.
He told her a friend was about to be evicted from his flat and desperately needed money. He asked her to draw out at least £50 and when she asked if he would get it back, he shrugged his shoulders. It was an early example of the generosity for which Freddie became famous. In later years such altruism came easy, it invariably did with fabulous wealth, but Jer Bulsara saw the early episode as snapshot of his developing personality. “That was his way, always generous, always thoughtful of others,” she explained.
