After fixing a 91-year-old woman’s broken boiler, a British plumber’s kindness is being recognized around the world. The woman’s daughter shared the receipt with James Anderson’s heartwarming message after he finished the job.
On Facebook, Christine Rowlands shared a photo of Anderson’s invoice that quickly went viral. There was a leak in Rowlands’ mother’s boiler, and a plumber was needed to fix it. The 91 yr grandma was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Christine was worried that her terminally ill mother would succumb to the cold if she remained in her house alone.
Upon receiving a call from her sister, Anderson showed up to fix the problem and promised to send her an invoice via email. But he didn’t send an invoice to be paid; instead, he wrote on the receipt: “No charge for this lady under any circumstances. We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible.”
On a GoFundMe page for the business, several elderly customers hold a ‘0.00’ invoice, and almost £1,000 of the £4,000 goal has already been raised. According to Mr. Anderson, a grandfather of three and a grandfather of five, he was inspired to start Depher after seeing a pensioner with a disability get conned out of £5,500 on pointless boiler work.
What a wonderful man and what a wonderful story. Please SHARE your thoughts and prayer for Mr. Anderson and all the grandma around America.
