He then bought £40 worth of grub before handing it to the women outside as he left.

His random act of kindness came when he visited Chicken Delite in Slough, Berkshire.

Wasib Arif, who runs the takeaway, said: “Raheem asked me about a couple of ladies who were outside begging. He wondered if they were there all the time.

“He then asked if he could buy them food, as he would rather do that than give them money for drugs or alcohol. I said, ‘You can do that’.”

Raheem ordered boxes of chicken and burger meals which were put in three bags.

He tipped Wasib and his colleague £20 before giving some of the food to the women. Wasib added: “He just strolled in so casually in a T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms.

“He picked up his bags of food and walked out. He could have had someone pick it up for him. He was really ­humble . . . a lovely gentleman.”
