During the summer of 2017, some roofing contractors working in the U.K. spotted a homeless man sleeping on a bench close to their latest job in London. They then saw their way to giving the down-on-his-luck guy half a day’s work. But it is what happened next that the contractors didn’t see coming. Indeed, when the men arrived at work the next day, they couldn’t believe who was standing there waiting for them.
JayJay Murray was one of those contractors working for Empire UPVC & Roofing Specialists, which is based on the northern outskirts of London. In August 2017, however, something happened to Murray and his colleagues while they were on a job. That something was so remarkable, in fact, that the story quickly went viral after Murray posted it on his Facebook page.
