Season of goodwill: Good Samaritans pay Ghc852 for elderly homeless woman to stay in 4-star hotel

- Construction workers met a homeless woman on the streets

- They decided to put her up in a 4-star hotel

- They won praise for their kind gesture

Two construction workers in Bristol, UK, were having a night out when they met a 71-year-old homeless woman recently.

Roger Hartigan and his colleagues, Joe Rich and David Harrison, struck up a conversation with her and learned that she had nowhere to go.

In an interview with SWNS, Roger said:

I saw this woman and she looked very fragile. She said she was 71 years old and had nowhere to go. We gave her some money and some cigarettes and we tried to hire her a taxi to take her to a hotel – but none would stop.

They then decided to check her in at the 4-star Radisson Blu in Broad Quay, which set them back £145 (Ghc852).

However, they didn't mind the cost at all. Roger said all they cared about was that she was warm and safe.
