A mystery Good Samaritan came to the rescue of a harassed mum.
And the amazing act of kindness at a Huddersfield store stunned not only Katie Nicholas but also others after she shared the story on Facebook.
Katie, a mum of two, found herself at the checkouts at Morrisons’ supermarket in Waterloo without the means to pay, after forgetting husband Paul had taken her bankcard.
But she was staggered when a woman behind her in the queue stepped forward and paid the £26 shopping bill with her contactless card.
Katie tried to get the woman’s name and phone number so she could repay the kind act but the woman said: “It’s OK” and walked off.
Katie, of Waterloo, said: “It just goes to show there are still some lovely people out there.
“I tried to get her name so I could pay her back but she said something about doing nice things gets its own rewards and walked off.
“It was a lovely thing to do”.
Katie had five-year-old daughter Charlotte with her as she stocked up in the shop. She is also mum to one-year-old Dominic.
“I was rushing around doing the shop with Charlotte and got to the self-service tills only to open my purse and remember Paul had taken my card.
“I said to the assistant that I would have to come back with the money when this lady stepped forward. I think she had her son with her and she had her card on the contactless pay machine before I could say anything.
“This is the most wonderful thing anyone has ever done for me and goes to show there are still some amazing people in the world.
“I really want to thank this lady and repay her, and the next time I am in Morrisons and someone hasn’t got their card, I will definitely do the same.”
