​Police Officers Help Grieving OAP Who Was Left Without TV After Wife Died

​Police Officers Help Grieving OAP Who Was Left Without TV After Wife Died

Police offers in Birmingham rallied recently to help an OAP who was left with an empty home after his wife passed away.

When neighbourhood officers WPC Rogers and PC Greaves spotted that the grieving pensioner was without several key items, including a TV, they worked together and used their contacts to refurnish his home.

Ladywood Police tweeted about the kind act, saying that the two officers had 'delivered and set up items for them elderly gentleman', and that he was 'extremely grateful for the kindness'.

Unsurprisingly, they also said it was a 'tearful moment'. Man, I bet there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

In another tweet they explained that Rogers and Greaves had enlisted the help of Trident Reach, a charity based in Hagley Road that provided the money to buy a replacement TV.

"He lost his wife recently and her family have gone and taken her items leaving him with an empty home," the tweet explained.
