A blogger who won a free supermarket food shop showed true Christmas spirit by donating the entire £50 haul to her local food bank.
Gylisa Jayne admitted she felt ‘a bit like when those well off folks win the lottery’ when Aldi offered her the shop as compensation.
So, the 25-year-old worked off a list of shortages at her local food bank in Liskeard, Cornwall, before handing the supplies over to those that truly need them.
Gylisa, who is known on Facebook as rockandrollmother and has 33,000 followers, initially posted a tongue-in-cheek complaint after finding three smoothies in a pack of four bought from Aldi.
She wrote: ‘Imagine the confusion when upon promising the devil-spawn a juice after the park, I cracked open my four-pack box of juice smoothies to discover I have been pied – and there is only three.
‘Now I may have lied on every CV I have ever handed in and claimed to have a B in maths, when it was actually a ‘Hoped For The Best E’.
‘But there was deffo only three in the box.’
Aldi responded by offering her a free £50 shop to apologise, and Gylisa, whose family was forced to use a food bank when she was a child, saw it as an opportunity to give back.
She wrote: ‘I swore then that I’d repay the karma one day, when I could.
‘And then this happened, and it was too much of a coincidence to not take note of.’
Along with her partner Ryan and daughter Lily, two, Gylisa chose a range of products including biscuits, cereal, long-life milk, shampoo and toilet roll – as well as some treats.
Liskeard and Looe food bank said Monday was the busiest day they had ever had, with more than a tonne of food handed over to them in just a day.
