Mother moved to tears when strangers handed phone and card to Aldi employees

A mother of two who was “pacing up and down the aisles” trying to find her phone and bank card was saved by the selfless act of a stranger.

Clare Begley, from Moss Bank, which ran the Christmas shop at St Helens Retail Park Aldi, discovered she had lost her phone after stopping to chat with a friend.

Since Clare’s phone had her bank card in it and was full of sentimental photos and videos of her family, she immediately panicked and ran through the store looking for it.

After finding “nice” shop assistants in vain at Clare’s, she finally gave up and her husband came to pay for the grocery store.

Stressed out at the prospect of losing her belongings just before Christmas, Clare was on her way to the bank to cancel her card when a Good Samaritan called her partner to say he’d found her phone and given it to Aldi staff had handed over.

Clare, who has two sons aged 4 and 20, said: “It wasn’t really about the phone because that’s quite old now, but it had my bank card on the back.

“The phone was full of sentimental photos and videos of my sons and my partner. They are just things that cannot be replaced.”

After the stress of losing and finding her belongings, Clare said she was emotional and in tears when she picked up her phone from the supermarket.

When she got home, she posted her story on social media to show her gratitude to the man who turned in her phone and to highlight the good and honest people of St Helens.

Clare, 47, added: “I was so happy and emotional to get the phone back I didn’t even catch the man’s name.
