Background

A quantity surveyor left paralysed after falling in his bedroom is the latest beneficiary to receive help from national charity Band of Builders. 

Robert Lamb, 58, suffered a severe spinal cord injury when he fainted due to low blood pressure at home in October.  

The father of four, from Solihull, underwent surgery but has been left paralysed from the chest down. He is now recovering at a rehabilitation centre in Oswestry and is hoped to return home in February. 

With Robert unable to walk, the house where he and his three sons - Callum, Gavin and Mackenzie, who plays for West Bromwich Albion’s youth team - live will need to be adapted to ensure it is safe and comfortable for him in his new situation.

The Project

A team from Band of Builders will carry out a range of adaptations to Robert's home in Solihull in order to ensure it is safe and accessible for him when he returns home.

With Robert's prognosis still not confirmed, planning is underway and the exact scope of works yet to be agreed but it will be undertaken by volunteer tradespeople from across the country using materials donated by the construction sector.
