There is still some good in the world 😇

A plumber is melting the world’s hearts after it was revealed he fixes pipes and boilers for vulnerable customers without any charge.

His generosity came to the fore after a bill was posted online showing he charged a 91-year-old woman with acute leukaemia £0. Speaking about the positive public reaction, James said: ‘We didn’t expect it. It’s been everywhere.’He has found internet fame as a result of his act of kindness towards the woman James said he was inspired to wind down his private work and begin Depher after seeing an elderly man poorly treated by another engineer.Since 2017, he has provided free or lower-cost plumbing to those in need throughout winters.

Having helped locals in Lancashire over the past two winters, James is now hoping to take Depher’s work country-wide.
