Yesterday we published and shared the heartbreaking story of a little girl who lost her birthday money on a trip to B&M. Well, the store pulled-out all the stops to save this young lady’s birthday. Top work guys!
We’ll let Mum, Dana Squibb, tell the full story:
It was my daughter’s 10th birthday on the Friday 28th July and on Saturday 29th July we went to B&M in Newgate Lane, Fareham so she could spend some of her birthday money on some Jo Jo bows that she wanted.
Grace had £50 in her hand and we had only been in the store for around 10-15 minutes and she managed to lose £40 of it. As soon as we realised I ran round to the two aisles we had been in, we had staff checking too but we couldn’t find it.
I left my number with the staff hoping that someone may have picked it up and was going to hand it in. My husband also put a post on our local Facebook page, so many generous people offered Grace money which were lovely gestures but we didn’t accept.
The manager at the B&M store saw and commented on the post and said he was checking CCTV but to no avail. He then inboxed my husband with such a lovely offer I almost cried!
So today we went back to B&M. We didn’t tell Grace what it was for and this is what happened.
Robert, Simon, Milly and their amazing staff gave Grace a “girlie bundle” which included some Jo Jo bows that she had previously wanted to purchase along with a card with money in it too!
Not ONLY that but Grace also received money from friends and even a friend of my cousin after he saw my cousin had shared our post!
Thank you Paula, Danny & Nadene and Adam, thank you Robert and Simon and their amazing staff at B&M and thank you for all who commented with kind words and offers to replace Grace’s money!
You made our little girls day! I honestly don’t think her smile could get any bigger!!! ?
