Mom Thanks Supermarket Worker Who Helped Her Visually Impaired Children

+10 for humanity.

A mother in the U.K. published "a massive thank you" on Facebook to a cashier for her incredible act of kindness at a supermarket.

Amanda Wilkins and her two daughters visited grocery store Morrisons in Basingstoke on Saturday. Her daughters are visually impaired and autistic, and shopping with them usually presents a challenge. This time, Wilkins said her kids had a "meltdown" in the store.

That's when Lin, a Morrisons employee, helped by letting one daughter, Holly, scan the shopping items at the register. The worker's patience and quick thinking helped Holly calm down.

"A dream come true for Holly who loves playing 'shops.' It melts my heart to come across people that are prepared to go the extra mile, and little acts of kindness [make] a massive difference to my world," Wilkins wrote on Facebook. "I hope this gets back to her and she knows how much we appreciate it."

She featured a photo of Lin's kind act on the Facebook post, which went viral.


Wilkins' post also caught the attention of the store manager, Simon Nellis.

"That's my Lin! Thanks for sharing this- I make a massive fuss of my team when they do great, natural things for our customers like this and they also go on our wall of fame. I can now do this with Lin," Nellis commented on Facebook.

The following day at the store, Nellis gave Lin a bouquet of flowers for her kindness. According to The Daily Mail, Nellis said he was choked up when Lin received her flowers.
