A Northampton couple say they would like to thank from the “bottom of their hearts” the anonymous person who posted £100 worth of Morrisons vouchers through their letterbox.

Former soldier Dean Griffin and his wife Kerri, of Kingsthorpe, said the kind gift would help pay for the Christmas dinner and make the festive period more enjoyable for them.

Mr Griffin, who suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from a tour of Iraq in 2003, said he believed the kind gift may be linked to his charity work for the Royal British Legion.

Mr and Mrs Griffin have helped raise more than £260,000 for the Northampton Poppy Appeal in recent years.

Mr Griffin said: “Myself and my wife have done a lot for charity ourself but we never thought we’d be subject to such kindness from somebody that is looking out for us.

“We would like to give out a message...whoever you are, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you have touched us in more ways than one, just the thought that somebody is looking out for you when you thought that nobody cared is more than anyone can ask for, God bless you, I hope you had a great Christmas & a happy new year from Dean, Kerri and family.”
