GOOD SAMARITAN PAYS FOR HOME RESTORATION WORK FOR PENSIONERS – This is the story of Gordon and Betty Fowle who little cottage home was almost lost after it suffered from a collapsed wall.
In the usual style of the Insurance Company, in this case the Prudential, they refused to pay up and Gordon, an 88 year old D-Day Veteran and his wife Betty were devastated after being left homeless and without help.
Without anywhere to live, the couple was forced to say with friends, and was unsure if they would ever be able to raise the £24,000 needed to repair the collapsed wall to their home.
Now enter an unknown good Samaritan, residing somewhere in their village, who generously stumped up the entire amount so that Gordon and Betty could once again return the cottage they have called home for most of their lives.
Both Gordon and Betty have expressed their internal gratitude and never thought that someone could be that generous.
It’s almost incredible to think, that after paying £500 a year in insurance premiums to the Prudential could refuse to pay out, however the Prudential stated that it was frost that can caused the damage and this was something that Gordon and Betty’s policy did not cover.
Meebal.com View – It is heartwarming to know that there are people out there that are willing to go above and beyond what is normally expected of a human being to help a fellow human being. Whoever you are, you certainly have our admiration and that of the British Nation. It is people like you that allow other British Citizens to stand up and be proud to be British.
As for Gordon and Betty, if it wasn’t for the likes of Gordon and Betty we wouldn’t be living in a free society. No doubt we would be ruled under a Nazi regime and therefore our gratitude can never be truly expressed, however we believe that one person has tried by paying for the repairs to your home.
Finally to the Prudential – We wouldn’t take a policy out with you if you were the last insurance company on the planet. You ought to be thoroughly ashamed of yourselves and if you had any type of moral fiber you would come out with a press release apologizing profusely and pay for the repairs. This would allow Gordon and Betty to repay whoever the Samaritan is or if the Samaritan wishes to donate the money to either their or Gordon and Betty’s favourite Charity.
On a final note, if you hold a Prudential policy, look at it carefully or better still cancel it in support of Gordon, Betty and the Good Samaritan.
