A mother-of-three was given a year’s free supply of milk after she helped push a huge truck up a snowy hill during Storm Darcy.
33-year-old Charlene Leslie, a supermarket worker, was filmed pushing the Grahams milk truck up the street in Fife on Tuesday. She said that she was on the way to the supermarket when she saw the lorry in need.
The mother then asked a neighbor to watch her kids as she ran to the lorry to help out.
To show gratitude for her incredible efforts, Graham’s has rewarded the Superwoman mother-of-three a year of free supply of milk.
Speaking about the moment she pushed the lorry up the hill, Charlene said: “I would never just stand by when I see someone in trouble.”
“I suppose what I did was really dangerous, but thankfully the Graham’s truck got safely up the hill. In the moment I wasn’t really thinking about me, I just wanted to help.”
She continued: “A load of people were trying to push a car up the hill when I noticed the Graham’s truck coming behind it.
“Its front wheels were spinning, and it was stuck from all the snow. My neighbour appeared, so I asked her to watch the kids and the dog while I pushed it from the back.
“Eventually it made it safely to the top. I cannot believe all the attention I am getting for what I did,” Charlene said.
“I simply believe that it is your duty to help others if they are in trouble. It was lovely to meet Mr Graham as I’m a huge fan of the family farming brand and their products.
“I really didn’t help out to receive anything in return, but I am absolutely delighted at their offer of free Graham’s dairy products for a year.”
The chairman of Graham’s The Family Dairy, Dr. Robert Graham Snr, said: “When I saw the video of Charlene pushing one of our artic lorries up a steep hill singlehandedly, I couldn’t believe it.
“As a family we are passionate about our fresh dairy products and like us, she will clearly stop at nothing to ensure they get delivered to our customers.
“Charlene’s intentions were incredibly kind. She not only made our family, farmers and colleagues smile, but clearly captured the hearts of thousands of people across the world who also watched her help others, without a thought for her own safety.”
The chairman added: “Although she is a real-life superwoman, for health and safety reasons we must advise others not to follow her actions.
“As a heartfelt thank you, Charlene and her family will receive our milk and high protein dairy products free for the rest of the year.”
