Two kind-hearted nine-year-olds had found her card and brought it to her small cul-de-sac home to return it to her.

Once the smart kids had confirmed it was Safrina’s card, they handed it back to her.
The next day, the grateful 32-year-old went to the girl’s house to meet their proud mums Wioleta and Katarzyna.
To show her appreciation she gave them a thank you gift which included easter eggs and a cash reward.
She said: “I went to work on that day and had taken my credit card out along with some other items and started my support worker job.
“I left the house at 3.19pm and stopped at Morrisons to get petrol and I couldn’t find my credit card.
“It was a weird moment where you think to yourself I’m pretty sure I took it out with me but I didn’t think much of it, maybe I forgot to take it as I had other items that I brought out as well.
“I started work around 3.45pm and I got a notification from my door bell from the girls at 3.58pm and that’s when I had realised I had lost it.

“The girls were sceptical at first and asked me details on my card which I confirmed and they posted it through my letterbox and I had asked where they lived and stated they lived just across the road from me about 30 yards away.
“I told them I would come and see them today or tomorrow when I’m free and thanked them.
“I had finished my tea calls around 6pm and wasn’t due out for bed calls until 7.30pm and that’s when I put together the gifts and went to their house and presented the gifts.”
The impressed business owner explained why the small act of kindness was so special.
“The parents especially are happy and proud, I’ve made new friends and taught the girls values and morals of their good deeds.
“It’s always what I try to do with other kids to teach them right and wrong as kids are our future,” she said.
She continued:”They all gave me a big hug and smiled. I had met the father on the day of giving them gifts on the same day but I hadn’t met the mothers yet until yesterday, they were all there and invited me in for a coffee.
