A Norfolk business has brought tears to people's eyes after leaving gifts as a random act of kindness across its hometown.

Poppys Norfolk, which produces wax melts, went around Dereham on Friday, June 10, leaving a card with a wax melt inside on car windscreens.

The team have since received messages of thanks, with many saying the gift had "made their day" and "raised their spirits".

Owner Hollie Ikins said: "We genuinely didn't realise how many people it would touch.

"We had lots of messages from people saying it had made their day and raised their spirits. 

"Some people even said they started crying.

"Reading everyone's messages made it totally worth it and we will definitely do it again.
