Daniel Spilling stepped forward and replaced both the windows free of charge
A Whitworth window and door fitter has refused to take payment after replacing two windows at The Lighthouse Community Foodshare.
After the glazing in the windows had failed, Daniel Spilling, of The Window & Door Outlet, stepped forward and replaced both the windows free of charge.
Daniel, who started the business around two years ago, said: “I know what’s it like, growing up and not having food on the table. I relied on friends and relatives to help me out from time to time, so I thought I’d do what I thought was right and help them.
“It’s not the best of times at the moment for anyone, and I will do anything I can to help anyone who needs it.”
The Lighthouse’s Marilyn Jones said: “Not only did Daniel make this generous offer, but actually replaced both entire windows, completely free of charge. Daniel spent the whole day working on the Lighthouse, and refused to take a penny for the cost of the windows.
“We are so lucky to have such generous and caring members of our local community who are willing to help out, and this gesture has meant the world to us.
“Thank you so much, Daniel.”
Based at 551-552 Market Street, the Lighthouse is a partnership between the long-running Rochdale Soup Kitchen and Whitworth Methodist Church, allowing local people to get food parcels of all the basics they need to help feed their families
