Woman who pushed diary lorry up snow covered hill given a year’s free supply of milk

A woman who helped push a diary lorry uphill was rewarded with a year’s free supply of milk.

Charlene Leslie, 33, was filmed pushing the massive Grahams milk lorry up a snow-covered street in Scotland’s town of Cowdenbeath in west Fife, during Storm Darcy.

The supermarket worker was heading to the shops when she saw the Grahams lorry in trouble and asked a neighbour to watch her children as she rushed to help out.

And to thank her heroic efforts, Graham’s has now gifted Charlene a year of free dairy products and have described her gesture as ‘incredibly kind’.

Charlene, who was with 10-year-old daughter Rihanna and Hunter, two, at the time, said: ‘I would never just stand by when I see someone in trouble.

‘I suppose what I did was really dangerous, but thankfully the Graham’s truck got safely up the hill.

‘In the moment I wasn’t really thinking about me, I just wanted to help.

‘A load of people were trying to push a car up the hill when I noticed the Graham’s truck coming behind it.

‘Its front wheels were spinning, and it was stuck from all the snow. My neighbour appeared, so I asked her to watch the kids and the dog while I pushed it from the back.

Dr Robert Graham Snr, chairman of Graham’s The Family Dairy said: ‘When I saw the video of Charlene pushing one of our artic lorries up a steep hill singlehandedly, I couldn’t believe it.

‘As a family we are passionate about our fresh dairy products and like us, she will clearly stop at nothing to ensure they get delivered to our customers.

‘Charlene’s intentions were incredibly kind. She not only made our family, farmers and colleagues smile, but clearly captured the hearts of thousands of people across the world who also watched her help others, without a thought for her own safety.

‘Although she is a real-life superwoman, for health and safety reasons we must advise others not to follow her actions.

‘As a heartfelt thank you, Charlene and her family will receive our milk and high protein dairy products free for the rest of the year.’
