Plumber extends free services amid crisis

Plumber James Anderson has extended his not-for-profit services to include low income and single parent families, plus NHS workers.

Last year, he made the headlines after carrying out work for an elderly woman who was terminally ill with leukaemia. After fixing the woman’s broken boiler, a £0.00 invoice was sent.

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, the designated key worker has once again expanded the list of services he offers.

These include preparing and delivering food parcels, offering gas and electricity top-ups, supporting NHS staff by delivering tokens of appreciation and providing breakdown repairs free of charge.

He said: “The elderly, vulnerable, and those on low incomes need our help more than ever. Coronavirus is threatening their health and financial security. It’s essential that we support.”

In order to allow him to continue the work, he is appealing to those who are willing to help. Having initially set up a GoFundMe page in November 2019, to help combat the coldest winter in a decade. The campaign is now aiming to reach a target of £50,000 to help those in need during the pandemic.
