  • Annie Rajani, 31, bought a huge pile of B&M clothing in the sale
  • She will donate the haul of clothing to a Mumbai orphanage
  • Annie’s post went viral with thousands of likes on Facebook

A selfless London-based woman got the deal of the century when she found a haul of B&M clothes costing just 10p each - and the kindhearted bargain hunter instead decided to donate it all to charity.

Annie Rajani, 31, an accountant, bought a huge pile of clothes from the bargain store and decided to take the items with her on a family trip to India, where she regularly donates clothing to an orphanage in Mumbai.

She shared a photo of her kind gesture to the Latest Deals, Extreme Couponing & Bargains Group money-saving Facebook group, writing: "All 10p each in B&M. All going to a charity in India that we go to each year 🙂”.

Her post went viral with over 4,500 likes and 640 comments from admiring members of the online community, who wrote: “What a wonderful gesture” and “lovely start to the new year”.

Annie told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: “I got the idea to do this from when I was travelling around India and seeing how the poor lived with literally no clothes or food.

“I just popped into B&M one day to get a few bits and thought to use the scanner to see if any clothes were on offer after seeing another post about it. The clothes all cost 10p each!

"I bought mainly kids' pyjamas and tops such as Peppa Pig, My Little Pony and Cars. I paid £3.30 and it should have cost £178.67 so I saved £175.38!

"We will be taking them to an orphanage in India run by a girl who was left in one. It’s for newborns to 18-year-olds. They literally have no clothes or anything, yet this lady teaches them all such amazing manners and other work.

"When we went last year to donate clothes, the looks on the kids' faces when you dress them up in these clothes will forever touch you.

“I’d like to add to please keep on donating to those less fortunate regardless of country. There are unfortunately people all over the world who are desperate for a bit of clothing!”

Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, says: “LatestDeals.co.uk is all about finding amazing deals every day, but it’s incredible that Annie decided to use her bargain-hunting power for the greater good. This selfless act will no doubt make a huge impact on the lives of the children Annie will meet, and shows the kindness and goodness that can come from an act of bargain-hunting!”

What a lovely thing to do. Well done 😇 👏 there's nothing more important in my opinion than looking after the little angels left behind by their parents
