Band of Builders help former joiner

A Glasgow man left hospitalised for a year after a horror car crash will finally be able to enjoy his garden thanks to helping from a national construction charity.

Andy Dickson, from Lennoxtown, was involved in a near-fatal car accident in October 2014, leaving him with extensive injuries including a crushed hip and pelvis, as well as breaking all of his ribs and causing internal injuries.

National construction charity Band of Builders is now stepping in to help the family, finis

hing off the jobs that Andy can’t and making the family’s home safe and accessible for him, as well as making it possible for him to enjoy his garden.

From August 5th, a team of volunteer tradespeople from across the country will travel to Lennoxtown to spend three days carrying out jobs including levelling and re-laying the lawn; creating a small patio area; relaying flooring in the kitchen and installing a ramp from the back garden into the kitchen in case it is needed in the future. They will also install a shed and carry out electrical works that are needed.

“Things are still so uncertain for us, but just having some help to finish off these jobs will make a huge difference and means a lot to us.”
