A plumber from Britain has received a massive outflow of praises and appreciation after he decided to charge $0 from an elderly lady, who is terminally ill. James Anderson from the British town of Burnley has been lauded for his zero charge bill, which was shared online, for fixing a smashed boiler at a 91-year-old lady’s house.
The receipt was shared by the elderly woman’s daughter on social media and later by a user on Twitter.
The invoice that was issued to the woman suffering from leukaemia, read, “no charge for this lady under any circumstances” and “we will be available 24 hour to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible.”

According to reports, this isn’t the first time when Anderson has come to help elderly people around as he runs his own company, Depher – Disabled & Elderly Plumbing and Heating Emergency Repair, a not-for-profit plumbing company since March 2017.
Anderson, who is from Liverpool, told BBC, “There are too many elderly and disabled people suffering in silence.
They don’t like asking for help. They don’t want to be a burden.” Hence, they “take away the burden, the stigma.” Anderson owes “just under £8,000” but as said to CNN, he offers 25% discount on his services even if the fund is running low.
