Liverpool Plumber praised for heroic kindness

A plumber has gone viral after fixing pipes and boilers for OAPs and disabled customers free of charge.

Kind-hearted tradesman, James Anderson, 52, says he has helped thousands of elderly and vulnerable people in need since shutting down his private firm and launching not-for-profit company Depher.

His acts of kindness went viral after a snap of his bill for £0 sent to a 91-year-old woman with acute leukaemia was posted online.

The receipt for the boiler repair was accompanied by a note reading: “No charge for this lady under any circumstances.

“We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible.”

He said, “We didn’t expect it. It’s been everywhere.”

The handyman, originally from Liverpool, has worked hard to raise funds for the enterprise using crowdfunding and donations to enable him to help people in need across Lancashire.

The father of five said he was inspired to wind down his private work and begin Depher after seeing an elderly man poorly treated by another engineer.

“To me, debt is debt… I would rather owe some money to somebody and another person be alive and happy and safe. It’s an ethos that’s in my heart and it will always stay there,” he said.
