Gran reveals complete stranger paid for her ENTIRE Christmas shop as she searches for sweet Good Samaritan

A SHOCKED gran was left in awe as a complete stranger offered to pay for her family's Christmas shop while waiting at the checkout.

Beverley Cooke described the stranger as an angel after he insisted on paying her shopping in a wonderful act of kindness at a Lidl in Helston, Cornwall.

Beverley Cooke said that people would think she "totally lost the plot" after hearing what happened on Friday, December 17 while doing her food shopping.

Writing on Facebook, she said she hoped the man would come forward so she could express her gratitude and invite him round for Christmas dinner.

She wrote that after unloading her large shop onto the conveyor belt, a young man behind her insisted he pay for the entire thing.

The grandmother said: "When I write this you will all think I have totally lost the plot.

"Today at around 5.45 pm I was in Helston Lidl with my three granddaughters. A young man was behind me in the queue.

"I placed my big shop on the belt and he said when it had all gone through 'I will pay for that'."

She said that tried to decline the offer but had no luck: "He said 'I want to'," she continued. "I replied 'Why?' and he said 'You have a beautiful family and it's Christmas'."

"I looked at the checkout operator and he said that if he wants to then let him.

"I thanked him and asked if he had family and he replied no he was just visiting. I asked where he was from and he said Newcastle.

"[He] fist-bumped me and I noticed he was wearing a Help for Heroes band."

Beverley was so moved that she invited the mystery man to spend Christmas Day with her family.

She continued: "We left the shop and a gentleman who was outside commented that he had never seen such a wonderful act of kindness.

"The young man came out and I thanked him again and said he was an angel."

After sharing her story to local Facebook pages and groups, Beverley has been overwhelmed with messages.

She described the kind stranger as around 23-year's-old, with auburn hair – and wearing a mask.

One said: "I hope you manage to find him as it was such a lovely thing to do."

Another wrote: "Lovely heartwarming story. What a smashing bloke. Hope he is okay for Christmas."

A third person said: "What a lovely man. How sweet and so kind."

Others said the man may not want to be found but Facebook users reminded others to pay kindness forward whenever possible.
