Malcolm Pilgrim, aged 80, received the goodies from sales advisor Louise Ball at Scrivens Opticians and Hearing Care on Oxford Street.
Louise said: “It was part of our company’s festive campaign to celebrate customers who we felt deserved a treat. Mr Pilgrim is a carer for his wife and his disabled daughter. He does so much for his family and always comes in with a smile on his face and is always so kind to us when we see him.
“We have looked after his hearing care since 2015. He has recently had a stroke and we felt our festive surprise would put a huge smile on his face and show our appreciation.”
Mr Pilgrim, a retired fish and chip shop owner, said: “It was such a nice surprise. The staff at Scrivens have always been very kind to me. I have had a stroke and I am trying to get over it by being positive and this lovely gesture has really helped.”
