A Sheffield mum has netted almost £400 of goodies for her family, after winning the chance to take part in a supermarket sweep.

When Pam Nixon, aged 65, received the call to tell her she had won a trolley dash at the new branch of Netto in Queens Road, Heeley she called it a ‘dream come true’.

But due to suffering from conditions that affect her mobility, including arthritis, Pam passed on the baton to her daughter Debbie Collins.

Lucky for her, Debbie, who has ‘always’ wanted to take part in a supermarket sweep, was more than happy to step up to plate on her behalf.

As part of the challenge, mum-of-two, Debbie, had to hit every single aisle in the supermarket, and collect as many items as she could manage in just three minutes.

As Debbie was cheered on by mum, Pam, and her two sons 10-year-old George Collins and Henry Collins, aged seven, the 36-year-old weaved in and out of the aisles, grabbing racks of lamb, bottles of beer and anything else she could get her hands on to put in the trolley.

And after a jam-packed and frenzied three minutes, retail worker, Debbie, managed to scoop up an impressive £373 worth of Netto goods.

“I’m so proud of her,” said Pam, of Ronald Street, Darnall. She continued: “I knew she would do well, but this is even better than I expected.

“I’m going to split everything between Debbie and my other daughter, Angie, so I’m glad I’ll have so much to give them!”

Netto store manager, Henrik Timmner told The Star: “We wanted to do something fun for the customers that would make them happy, and I think we’ve definitely managed that today!”
