A Norwegian estate agent could be both the luckiest and nicest man in the world after he made an unbelievable discovery in his new flat.
Real estate broker Vemund Thorkildsen is being praised after he found nearly £30,000 hidden underneath the fireplace of his new apartment – and then donated the whole lot to charity, reports ITV News.
Vemund, 27, said he made the discovery as he was showing off his newly purchased Oslo apartment to his friend.
While the pair were trying to figure out whether the fireplace could be moved to another room, they lifted a stone panel.
Hidden underneath it they found an envelope stuffed with hundreds of Norwegian bank notes.
At first we started to celebrate like if we had won the lottery but then I thought this is not my money.
Instead – in a display of amazing generosity – he decided to donate the whole lot to The Norwegian Cancer Society.
It would have been nice to go on a vacation, but that money wasn’t mine and it felt nice to give it to something good.
A lot of people say that they would have done the same thing and that’s good to hear. That gives you faith in humanity.Advertisement
It really does, what an absolute legend – Vemund is hopefully in the running for a serious dose of good karma.
