They say good help is hard to find, that’s why it was a bit of a surprise for JayJay Murray and his roofing team when they came across a homeless man just outside of London on their way to a home they were working on.
They gave the man a cup of tea and received an offer to help them on their project, to which they accepted.
JayJay wrote about the encounter and the hard work the homeless man, John, exemplified.
His post reads:
“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 the week but the boys had a whip round and he set off with £70 at 1oclock and asked when he could come back.”
“Hes 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..”
John told JayJay and his team:
“Thanks brothers its the most love ive ever had”
