Andrew’s condition means that he is now unable to finish the jobs he started before his car accident in October 2014. Our aim is to finish these jobs for Andrew and his family, enabling them to once again enjoy their garden and to make accessibility easier and safer for Andrew.

Andrew, 56 from Lennoxtown, Glasgow who lives with his wife Pamela and their son started his career as a joiner and progressed to become clerk of works and inspector with Glasgow District Council. He was involved in a near-fatal car accident in October 2014 which caused extensive injuries including a crushed hip and pelvis, as well as leaving all of his ribs broken plus internal injuries.

He suffered multiple complications which led to him being hospitalised for a year, enduring 26 operations, pneumonia and septic shock.

Due to the accident, Andrew is now unable to finish the jobs he had started. This is where Band of Builders will step in to complete the work.


The Project

A team from Band of Builders will carry out a range of jobs to Andrew’s home and garden to make access to his garden easier and safer as Andrew’s mobility is uncertain until after his next scheduled hip surgery.

Or aim is to extend the fish pond upwards with sleepers, carry out electrical works to the pond filters and shed and install a gazebo over the pond. BoB volunteers will erect a shed and build a small patio area, levelling and re-laying the lawn, adding a ramp from the back door into the garden and laying flooring to the kitchen. All work will be undertaken by volunteer tradespeople from across the country using materials donated by the construction sector.
