Mum praises Morrisons worker’s kindness after son’s favourite treat sells out

A mum was left “lost for words” after a worker from Morrisons showed an act of kindness.

Emma Catterall, 33, spends a lot of time shopping for her two-year-old boy Roman who suffers from severe allergies.

Her young son is currently undergoing numerous tests which makes it very difficult for the mum to find suitable food for him.

Roman’s allergies include some vegetables, gluten, wheat, soya and many other common ingredients, reports Lancs Live.

But Emma had her faith in humanity stored when one worker from the supermarket giant helped her out.

She found out the chain sold a “free from” cake suitable for her son, but sadly it’s not always on shelves.

At the Morrisons store in Leyland, Emma found herself asking staff worker Mollie Fishwick who quickly came to her rescue.

In a bid to help the frazzled mum, Mollie took the parent’s details and promised to call her if the sweet treat was in the next delivery.

And she was over the moon to receive a call on October 10 informing her the cakes had been left aside for her to collect.

Not only that, the kindhearted worker had already purchased them herself as a special treat for Roman.

Emma said: “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.

“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 on his face, she said that’s all I wanted to see.

“I said to her you’re an angel sent from heaven – to do that and go out of your way for Roman, no one has ever done that.

“I was lost for words and for some people that would seem really small but it wasn’t me she was helping, it was Roman and she didn’t know his full story – sleepless nights, hospital admissions because he’s in absolute agony, rushing around trying to find Piriton.”

Emma revealed how she was left “completely and utterly speechless” by Mollie’s kindness.

Mollie said: “I didn’t tell her I paid for them and it was actually a last-minute decision so she could just get on with her day.

“It takes me all of two minutes to change a little boy’s life and if I can do that then it’ll mean the world to them.

“Emma came and found me on the shop floor and Roman was blowing me kisses and scoffing all the cakes – it just melts my heart.”
