Boy, 7, spends pocket money buying toilet paper for elderly neighbours quarantined by coronavirus

With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing it’s difficult to find stories of hope and positivity.

Even so, Jimmy-Dean Hudson’s story is one no one can ignore. The seven-year-old has turned his efforts towards helping the elderly by buying toilet roll for them – and with his own pocket money, too.

As per reports, Jimmy-Dean and mom Tracy have been providing aid for his elderly neighbors in his hometown of Westcliff, England.

Tracy explained: Tracy said: “We went to the supermarket on Sunday and there was no toilet roll in sight.

“We then visited our local shop that had loads and Jimmy-Dean just said ‘Mum, lets buy lots and give it to the people who need it the most.’

“We got home, he packed a festival trolley with the loo roll and we headed out.

“We met some lovely elderly people who were taken aback by his kind gesture.

“One elderly man in his 80s was telling us how worried he was and how in the war they didn’t have this panic buying and communities pulled together to help and not be greedy.

“Jimmy-Dean has used his own money to fund this – he doesnt get a set amount just as and when.

“He does have some pocket money left but its going towards his next idea of buying snacks and drinks for local paramedics at Southend Hospital.

“I’m super, super proud of him, and he really has put smiles on many faces.

”All of his family, friends and school teachers are so proud of his kindness.”

What an inspiring little boy Jimmy-Dean is. At the current time it’s more important than ever that we keep the love we have for one another.

Thank you, Jimmy-Dean. We’re sending all our love and prayers to those who need it during these difficult time.
