A mum from Lancashire received help from a stranger after losing hope of finding a treat for her toddler, Roman, who has severe food allergies.
There is one treat – a cake from Morrisons Supermarket – that he can eat without getting sick. But they are often out of stock and he was sad that he couldn’t eat cakes like the other children.
A staff member called Mollie kindly said she would let Roman’s mum know when they came back into stock. She was shocked to receive a message shortly after asking her to come in.
"When I went to collect them, there were four boxes of the cakes and I said that's great, how much is it and the lady said they've been paid for," Emma said.
"I went to find Mollie to pay her back and thank her and she said no, it's my treat and to see Roman at the time sat in the trolley eating a cake with a big smile of her face, she said that's all I wanted to see.”
