The Friends of Ross Community Larder received a large donation on Friday, August 31st, left next to their donation bin in Morrisons.

They posted on their Facebook page:?“A lovely good news story today! One of our volunteers noticed this overflowing trolley next to our donation bin in Morrisons... was it for us? Oh yes it was!

“A customer had spent £75 on food and wanted it all donated to the Larder. She had been on hard times herself a few years ago and had received help from her local Food Bank (not Ross) and wanted to ‘pay back’ the kindness. Thank you so much to the generous soul who did this. A heart warming story indeed!”

Alison Tolley, who served the customer in Morrisons, said:?“I served her with all of that food. She was lovely and wanted no thanks for what she was buying. She just kept saying that she knew how it felt to feel desperate and wanted to give something back. Such a lovely humble lady.”

She told the Ross Gazette:?“She said she struggled for a few years and was too embarrassed to ask her family for help and they went mad when they found out. She had no electricity or gas and didn’t know where her next meal was coming from. She said the whole experience has taught her so much and made her really grateful for what she has now.

“She said she just wanted to give something back because she knows how it feels to be desperate.

“I said, ‘why don’t you take it to the food bank, they’ll be really grateful and it’d be nice for them to know you’ve given it’ and she said ‘I don’t want thanks, I just want to give something back’.”
