- She was moved to tears after discovering bags of food shopping outside home

A mother was left in tears after a kind stranger left bags of shopping and lunches for her five children in a random act of kindness.
Emma Frost, from Blacon, Cheshire was struggling to cope in October last year when she found two large bags of food shopping and five children’s lunch bags sitting on her doorstep.
The stranger left a note telling Emma that the donation was a ‘gift from our family to yours’ and that if she needed, they would drop off children’s lunches every day.
Mum Emma said the gift was ‘totally unexpected’ and left her in tears, thanking the stranger ‘from the bottom of her heart’.

‘My eldest went to the door as we were not expecting anyone and found the bags of shopping and five children’s lunch bags,’ said Emma.
‘When she came in, she told me that someone had left the shopping with a note. When I read the note I teared up. I was shocked. It was totally unexpected.
The heartwarming note read: ‘Hi Emma, I’m doing food drops in the community, and someone has put your name forward to receive one. I’m also doing kids packed lunches Monday-Friday.
‘If you don’t want to receive the kids lunches, just send me a message. Otherwise I’ll drop them between 10:30 and 12pm.

‘No need to come to the door, I will knock, drop and leave. A gift from our family to yours.’
The kind act took place in October, shortly after a Labour motion to extend the scheme providing free school meals for children during half term was rejected by MPs.
It came amid a campaign led by Manchester United star Marcus Rashford for the Government to fund meals for children in need during Covid-19 lockdowns.
Emma criticised the choice at the time, insisting that several families would have been left in a ‘worse situation’ than she was and said the donation could not have come at a better time as she was self-isolating.
‘I think the government have made the wrong decision as there are more families in a worse situation than we are, and they could really do with the help.
‘This will be amazing support to us this week as we are self-isolating due to my partners brother having a positive case of coronavirus.’

The gesture was well received by Emma’s children and the mother thanked the king stranger who she says ‘brightened up her day’ during a period she was ‘struggling mentally’.
‘My 16-year-old was shocked and my five-year-old and four-year-old were both very excited, she said. ‘My 11-month old just wanted the biscuits he had spotted at the top of the bag’.
‘I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart’, added Emma. ‘On a day where I was struggling mentally, you brightened it up.
‘It is very much appreciated and it shows there are still some people sharing their humanity around.’
