This from the United Kingdom website that we don’t ordinarily read “Heating, Ventilating & Plumbing,” is the story about the plumber who has started a crowdfunding site to help the elderly.
In what is predicted to be one of the coldest winters on record in England, plumber James Anderson is crowdfunding to raise up to £30,000 to provide free boiler repairs to the elderly and other low income families.
Of the money raised, £30 will be used to reimburse the service person for his/her expenses and if s/he does additional work s/he will donate 2% of their fee to keep the service going.
The target goal should provide this free service to about 1,000 needy families. I
t is estimated that there were many fatalities tied to the tough UK winter last year.
