Sidmouth pensioner’s joy over lost Xmas cash
A PENSIONER from Sidmouth has been left heartbroken after losing �145 she had set aside to buy her family Christmas presents.
HONEST staff at a Sidmouth business rescued a heartbroken pensioner’s festive hopes after she lost �145 set aside to buy her family Christmas presents.
The 87-year-old was left in despair after dropping a bundle of cash in the town last Friday.
Police said the upset and distressed pensioner feared someone had stolen the money, a combination of �5 and �20 notes.
The woman had just withdrawn it to buy gifts for her family.
An eagle-eyed staff member at Potbury’s spotted the bundle on the floor of the business and handed it in to her bosses.
The pensioner was reunited with the cash on Wednesday.
