The daughter of a Burnley man may have been thousands of miles away but she still managed to surprise him with a special Father’s Day gift.

Laura Butterworth (23), currently in Bangalore, India, nominated her father Paul to win a ‘Big Daddy Box’ courtesy of Higham based Roaming Roosters.

The company carry out a Random Act of Kindness once a month and this month they used their social media platforms to ask customers to nominate their dad or father figure with a reason as to why they deserved to win the meat box.

“I saw the Facebook post giving customers the chance to win a meat box and knew I had to nominate my dad,” said Laura, a science administrator at the National Centre for biological sciences in Bangalore.

“Although I’m at the other side of the world, I still wanted to do something special for him. My dad loved the surprise.”
