A shopper surprised two NHS workers by paying for their Sainsbury’s groceries at the checkout.
TWO paramedics entered the branch in Loughton, Essex, on Sunday and the public rallied round them to show support.
As the ambulance staff went round the aisles, people gave them praise, before one generous shopper made a big gesture of appreciation when the paramedics went to pay.
Adam Brooks said: “As I walked around the aisles I noticed two young female paramedics and I said ‘keep going guys!’ and walked on, other shoppers also praised them too.”
Mr Brooks said that, by the time he had reached the checkouts, several people had lined up to pay for their shopping.
He said: “A guy said to them, ‘Well done, you are doing amazing work’ and the paramedics looked emotional.
“He edged closer to them and said, ‘I must pay for your shopping’ and then he tapped his card on the terminal.
“They couldn’t thank him enough. It was a nice thing to witness.”
