HEARTWARMING: Plumber will not accept money from cancer-sick 91-year-old – becomes viral hero

 

Granniesjokes.com  A plumber has made headline news and is now being considered a hero after its revealed that he repairs pipes and boilers for vulnerable customers for absolutely free.  As reported by Metro, 52-year-old James Anderson has helped hundreds and thousands of people who were in need ever since he shut down his private business and started a not-for-profit company, named Depher, instead. However, it was one special act of compassion that warmed the hearts of people across the globe. A bill was posted on social media for services rendered at the home of a 91-year-old woman with acute-leukaemia. It transpired James had charged her a sum total of … nothing.   Accompanying the bill, James, a father-of-five, said: “No charge for this lady under any circumstances. We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible.” James revealed he was inspired to start not-for-profit company Depher after seeing an elderly man mistreated by an engineer. “A lot of people close to me ask: why are you getting yourself in to debt? Why are you doing this?” he said. “To me, debt is debt… I would rather owe some money to somebody and another person be alive and happy and safe.”   James has been providing free or low-cost plumbing for those in need since 2017. Even though he’s fallen into debts of around £8,000 ($9,940), he believes he’s doing the right thing. “It’s an ethos that’s in my heart and it will always stay there.” The main aim for James now is to ensure the sentiment of his work goes beyond merely what he can do with his own two hands. “I’ve spoken to quite a few engineers around the country and they’re all for it… it’s just getting the funding,” he said. “I don’t want any person who is elderly and disabled in this country, in this day and age, to die or suffer because of a cold home or a lack of funding to repair the boiler. “It shouldn’t be happening – that number should be down to zero. Simple as that.” Everyone be sure to share this story if you, too, think that James deserves tribute for his work.
