Asda worker goes viral after reaction to homeless man outside store 'Truly inspiring!'

Asda worker Debbie has been flooded with praise after the supermarket shared her touching story with shoppers. Posting on Facebook, an Asda spokesperson wrote: “When our colleague Debbie saw a homeless man sat on the kerb by our Wath Upon Dearne supermarket, she knew she couldn’t walk by without helping him.

“After chatting to him and discovering that he had been living rough for two weeks in a tent and was hungry, Debbie went into the store, bought him some food and a drink and grabbed an umbrella as it was raining.

“She knew of someone who was allowing their caravan to be used as a temporary shelter free of charge for homeless people, so she contacted them and arranged for him to stay there until he spoke to housing charities and got somewhere more permanent.”

Debbie’s kind gesture has received almost 30,000 likes and thousands of comments from impressed shoppers.

Debbie’s store manager, Shane, has now nominated her for an Asda customer service award.

He said: “A lot of people would have just walked past and not stopped, but not Debbie. She is a very kind-hearted person and will do anything for anyone.

“The man, who was in his early twenties, came into store to thank Debbie and to reassure her that he was okay and now had somewhere to stay. Well done Debbie, you are an outstanding colleague.”
