Argos staff in Hornchurch hope to reunite a lost envelope of Christmas cash with its rightful owner.

An envelope containing a sum of money and a Christmas note was handed to staff at the High Road branch of Argos by a conscientious customer last week.

Customer advisor Sian Darrah has safely held on to the envelope and reached out to the Recorder as no one has yet come in to ask it if has been handed in.

She said: “I just thought that’s a lot of money for some one to lose, especially when it’s Christmas time.”

To reclaim the envelope, go to Hornchurch in Argos between 8am and 8pm and ask for Sian or store manager Donna Edwards.

You will need to prove you are the rightful owner by stating the name of the author of the note, who it is addressed to and the sum enclosed.
