Mystery Donor Drops £7,500 Off Behind the Till
Staff at an Asda store in Scotland were left 'flabbergasted' after a generous donor stuffed £7,500 into a brown paper parcel and left it behind a till 'for the poor children'.
The huge sum was left untouched behind the till in an Edinburgh supermarket for two weeks - because staff believed that it was just a box of price stickers. But it was eventually opened by workers Linda Anderson and John Fawns - when it was found behind a customer service desk.
A member of staff said 'I came on shift that day and picked it up because it was time for me to put new stickers out.
'That's when I saw the note written on the back mentioning charity. No one had lifted it up before to see that. A colleague was passing so I told her I had something for her because she organises the store's charity work.
'We decided to open it and found two rolls of neatly stacked notes. I was shocked to see all that money, but we had to call the manager over because we're not allowed to handle large sums of cash on the shop floor.
Please give me whatever feedback comes to mind via firstname.lastname@example.org.
