I didn't bargain on a good deed this Christmas

Published 30/12/2013

I WENT into B&M Bargains at Connswater on Christmas Eve with the last of my money to get a few extra Christmas presents for my children.

I put my hand in my bag to get my phone out and dropped my money on the floor. Some young girl saw me drop it, waited until I walked away and picked it up and left the building.

A member of B&M staff saw her bend down and thought she looked suspicious, so he got security to check the CCTV.

The staff member stopped me and informed me what had happened. I was gutted – really upset. Then he told me that the manager wanted to talk to me. So I waited and, to my complete shock, he handed me £70 and said merry Christmas.

I started to cry in front of the manager and his staff. I have to say this has to be one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me, for which I am so very grateful.

I just thought I should tell as many people as I could. The staff and manager at B&M Connswater should have some recognition for the good deed they did for me this Christmas.
