This heart-warming story of a roofing company about a homeless man has gone viral
A Hertfordshire-based roofing company has posted a story about a homeless man to social media and it has become viral, according to the Independent.
JayJay Murray, an employee of Empire UPVC and Roofing Specialists, posted photos of a man called John to Facebook. In the post, Murray said John was homeless and, when offered a day’s work with the company, he accepted the offer.
The post read:
“We started a new job in London on a high road this week where this homeless man called John was living on a bench in the local park. We brought him a cup of tea early in the morning and offered him to come and help the next day. He was first on site and worked non stop, I have never seen anyone so happy to be at work! Got him Burger King for lunch and set him back on his way around London. He said £15 will be fine, that this would get him thro[sic] the week but the boys had a whip round and he set off with £70 at 1o’clock and asked when he could come back. His gratitude was a real eye opener. Keep going John got to be something good around the corner. Nobody willing to work should be living on the streets. ‘Thanks brothers its the most love ive ever had’ he told us.”
