Asda delivery driver commended after helping elderly Dunbar woman who fell as he helped her with shopping Asda

A delivery driver who helped an elderly woman after she fell and hit her head leaving her “shaken” has been commended.

Paul McCafferty was delivering groceries from Asda in Dunbar, East Lothian when the elderly resident he was bringing shopping in for tripped, fell and hit her head.

He quickly stepped in and helped her, making sure she was alright before he carried on with his deliveries.

His kindness did not stop there as the next day he worriedly returned to the customer’s house to check in on her, and found that she had made a recovery.

Paul said: “I was helping the customer when she suddenly fell and hit her head. I stayed and made sure she was okay before I went to my next delivery.

“I was worried about her afterwards, so I went to her house the next day to check in and she was delighted to see me. I was glad she was okay.

“I really enjoy my job, especially working with my colleagues and meeting people in the community when out on my deliveries.”

Paul’s good deed didn’t go unnoticed as general store manager, Leigh Millar, nominated him for a Service Superstar Award. 

She said: “Paul is a fantastic colleague; he is one of those people who always does everything he can for his customers.

“He is a real team player with a kind-hearted soul. He even went to customers’ houses with flowers and cards on Mother’s Day.

“Paul is one in a million and we are so lucky to have him as part of our Asda family.”
