Boy saves pennies for date with divorced mum

A four-year-old boy saved his pocket money to take his recently-divorced mum out for a Valentine's Day (14.02.16) dinner.

Staff at Pizza Express in Newton Abbott were moved to tears when Max Schofield took his devoted mummy Emma to the restaurant.

Emma - who has divorced her husband of six and a half years - told The Telegraph newspaper: "We were greeted with a waitress in tears who had watched our special dinner date.

"Looking at her eyes welling up, I also began to shed a tear. She gave us our meal free of charge as a gift from Pizza Express in Torquay as she was so touched by what my son had done.

"This extremely kind gesture left me crying with happiness and holding onto my son with pure joy!'
