A mother who suffered the tragedy of a stillborn birth just three weeks ago was moved to tears by a kind gesture from her local Tesco.

Tamzyn Rollinson, from Hove, was desperate to buy the same baby blanket she wrapped her daughter in when she was born to put in a memory box.

But when she looked online, she doscovered the blanket was currently out of stock.

She contacted supplier Tesco on Facebook who not only found one, but hand-delivered it with a card and flowers.

Writing on Tesco’s Facebook page, the 29-year-old said, “Hi Tesco, I just want to say a massive thank you to your lovely customer service team.”

“I really wanted to get hold of this certain blanket as my little girl was stillborn nearly three weeks ago and this is the same blanket I wrapped her in when she was born so I wanted one for myself to go in her memory box.”

“Tesco employees managed to track one down for me this morning and the lovely staff at the Shoreham by Sea branch went out of their way to hand deliver me not only the beautiful blanket but a gorgeous bunch of flowers and a card too!”

She told MailOnline : “After I spoke to them, the next morning thy told me they had found one, but I expected just to get an email saying that one would be available for collection at my local store.

“Then my partner, David called me and there were these two lovely blokes at my door standing there with a bunch of flowers for me.

“It’s not just down the road, they made a 16-mile trip, and they didn’t have to do that at all – they really went out of their way for me.”
