Martyn Hett loved his mum. The 29-year-old, who died in the Manchester bombing, proved it last year with a series of tweets that went viral.
In the lead-up to Christmas, Hett’s mum set up a stall featuring her knitted and other handmade items at a craft fair. It was the first time she’d had her own stall, and after a while, she messaged her son to share her disappointment.
She hadn’t sold anything.
Hett shared the news and a photo of the stall in a tweet, adding, “My heart is breaking.”
Deciding he had to do something for his mum, Hett added a link to his mum’s online shop. Before long, one of his friends had bought something. She had her first sale.
“OMG guys please continue to buy things,” he tweeted. “THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY.”
