“A few days later I was flicking through Facebook – I hadn’t realised until then what Leon had written – he’d really poured his heart and soul into his message.”
Debbie and her son got back to Asda where the employees were waiting for Leon. They handed in the panda to him and he was beyond grateful and happy.
“As he was walking out he said to me ‘This is the best day of my life’. It meant the world to him – thank you so much Asda!”
What the staff did for Leon didn’t only affect him, but the whole family. During their toughest period, while they were still mourning the loss of Leon’s baby brother, this kind act came as a reminder that no matter how hard it gets there are still things we should be grateful for.
“In January my son Oliver was born prematurely and passed away four days later so it’s been a really tough, difficult time for all of the family, especially the children who were so involved in the lead-up to the birth.”
We are so happy this very special boy got the panda he so much wanted to have. We are sure he will keep it as a loving memory of the good act even after he gets older.
