An Aldi manager has been celebrated for going above and beyond the call of duty to help out a little girl.

The worker, from York’s Water Lane store, left the child “practically in tears” due to his kind work.

Cat Stephenson's little girl Alison, seven, had spotted a Squishmallow rabbit toy on another shopping trip and decided to save up for it with her pocket money.

When she had stashed away enough cash she went in to Aldi to buy the Easter toy with her mum.

However, she was upset to find that the store had completely sold out, reports YorkshireLive.

But, seeing that Alison was devastated, manager Jamie decided to ring round every store in York to locate a spare toy, but they were all out of stock.

Knowing how upset the little girl was, Jamie told Alison’s mum, Cat, that if she came back next week and he would bring in his own Squishmallow rabbit which he purchased for his baby.

He said he bought the toy for his little one, but they wouldn’t miss it – and when they returned Jamie wouldn’t accept any money for the toy.

Mum, Cat, from Rawcliffe in York was "blown away" by his generosity and said it made Alison's Easter. The delighted little girl wrote her hero Jamie a letter to thank him.

Cat Stephenson said: "She has been inseparable with her toy, it goes everywhere with her, she has called him Jamie after the store manager."

The grateful mum, later posted to a York Public Facebook group, she posted: "I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jamie the store manager at Aldi at Water Lane York.

"My daughter had seen an Easter teddy she wanted a few weeks ago, she saved up her pocket money and went back a week later however all the toys had sold out.

"We went to ask the store manager and my daughter Alison had tears in her eyes as she had saved so hard to have this toy."

"It has completely made her day and it is lovely to see kindness in this strange world. Alison wrote a letter of thanks as she was so thrilled!
