A YOUNG girl who was diagnosed with leukaemia in October was ‘blown away’ after receiving a handful of cash from a stranger this week.

Nine-year-old Indie Violet Senior went to Meadowhall with her mum, Siobhan, 33, from Athersley North, on Tuesday after her visit to Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Siobhan told the Chronicle Indie was delighted, and proceeded to spend the money on skincare products and makeup, with the help of a consultant from Boots.

“A man approached us when we were in the Apple store and said to me ‘my son has had cancer - I know how you are feeling’.

“He looked at Indie and said he had something for her, and then gave her £100 in notes.

“It was just the most kindest thing and not something you’d expect to happen.

“Indie loves TikTok, she’s quite the influencer, so she was testing out skincare and makeup and treated herself to some products.

“I never got the man’s name and I so wish that I did, I was just so overwhelmed by the kindness of a stranger.”
