The items, including Christmas puddings, shortbreads and chocolates, came with a note from the unknown benefactor saying they were a ‘random act of kindness’.

One recipient, Katherine Deadman, found a Christmas pudding on a bench while out for a walk with her father and baby. ‘It was the best surprise,’ she told the BBC.

Ellie Fox, 22, who found a wrapped chocolate reindeer on a wall during her lunchbreak, said: ‘Everyone agreed it was a lovely thing for someone to do.’

And Emma Aldous said that after finding a present, her four-year-old son Douglas now wanted to wrap up one of his own toys for someone else to discover.

Last week the Daily Mail reported how a mystery benefactor had left at least 13 bundles of cash totalling £26,000 on the streets of Blackhall Colliery in County Durham for passers-by to find over the past five years.
