Bedroom Tax family who had £3000 debt paid by generous stranger launch bid to pay him back    10 JUN 2016

IAIN and Clare Duncan came within minutes of being booted out of their family home until retired teacher Thomas Doherty paid the £3000 debt.

A FAMILY saved from eviction at the 11th hour by a stranger who paid their £3000 debt are raising money to pay him back.

Iain and Clare Duncan and their 14-year-old daughter came within minutes of being booted out of their home last Friday.

But as sheriff’s officers prepared to break down their door retired teacher Thomas Doherty stepped in and used his debit card to settle their debt.

He was one of several protesters who had gathered at the family’s home in Thornliebank, near Glasgow, in a bid to stop the eviction.

The Duncans had run up rent arrears after being hit by the hated Tory bedroom tax for their three-bedroomed home.

They had thought that Glasgow City Council would cover the extra they were told to pay but that didn’t happen and the £1254 debt they owed had risen to £2773.

Despite having only met the family hours earlier, Thomas decided to clear the debt because of the “social injustice” of the situation.

Now the family have set up a Go Fund Me page to raise cash to repay him.

They have raised £575 in just two days, and Clare is urging people to help share the page on social media.

Clare said: “The man was a complete stranger and showed extraordinary kindness towards our family. This was a surprisingly heartfelt gesture. I have never heard of anything like this before.

“It is touching the amount of messages of support we have received. Tom is an absolute angel and I want him to know how much we appreciate him.”

Clare’s husband Iain said his faith in humanity has been restored following Thomas’s intervention.

He added: “You would never think someone who doesn’t know you could have such a big heart. Tom is a godsend, the unconditional generosity he showed to us beggars belief. I would like to hope this display of kindness is in us all. If it weren’t for him we would have lost our family home. I wish to give a special thanks to the Daily Record for their coverage. I would also like to thank everyone who came to protest.”
