A homeless man asked two painters for spare change, they gave him a job instead.
The two painters noticed the man asking passersby for spare change. They asked if he had been drinking, and when he told them “no”, they gave him a paint brush and put him to work instead.
“The man seemed really grateful and was enjoying himself. He was having a chat with the other painters, and people walking past were speaking to them too,” Darren Wheatcroft, the man who sent the pictures to the Manchester Evening News said.
The painters shared tips on painting and showed him what to do. The man, grateful for the work, did a beautiful job painting the building and was paid at the end of the day.
