A 15 year-old boy with cystic fibrosis whose condition has left him housebound has a brand new space in which to be homeschooled and meet with friends, thanks to Band of Builders.
A team of 22 tradespeople from around the country dedicated their time and skills to extend Kyle Sisson‘s home in Hereford with a dedicated room where he can socialize and do his schoolwork – broadening his living space and improving his quality of life.
A national charity run by and for tradespeople, Band of Builders is a community that helps members of the construction industry at times of need through hands-on projects, advice, and support. Kyle’s father is a steel erector.
“The first day they started it was pouring down with rain, but they still carried on working,” said Kyle’s mum, Debbie.
“All the builders have all got their own worries, yet they still came and they’re just like one big family.”
Dickies Workwear provided clothing to those working on-site and, to help raise awareness of the important work that Band of Builders does, it has created a video about this special project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_7a3t5mZbU&feature=youtu.be
