Tributes to homeless man who ‘spoke to everyone’ outside Morrisons after he dies suddenly

Tributes have been paid to a ‘kind’ homeless man who would speak to shoppers outside a supermarket after he died of a heart attack.

Harold McCaffrey died at Rose Brae hostel in Birkenhead, where he was staying, on October 29.

The 57-year-old, who was described as ‘a lovely man’, was well known to people in the area who would regularly chat to him and bring him food outside Morrisons in New Brighton .

A photo of Harold and his dog Alfie, who he ‘absolutely loved’, has been shared with the ECHO.

Cheryl German, a volunteer from the homeless charity Hope for Hungry, first became friends with Harold when she began talking to him in March.

The 52-year-old air hostess from New Brighton told the ECHO how she began helping Harold to find somewhere to live and get back on his feet during her days off from work.

Cheryl said: “He used to sit outside Morrisons in New Brighton with his dog and I’d always stop and speak to him.

“People would go and speak to him all the time and take him food.
