The Join Our Boys House
Due to the catastrophic nature of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and unless a cure is found, Archie, George and Isaac will be paralysed. Duchenne affects the while body and as the boys grow they will become weaker and weaker.
When the Trust was launched, the local community wanted to support the boys by building a large bungalow type home for them. The family currently live in a two story home that cannot be extended. The boys parents have never wanted to personally benefit from the funds, so they requested that The House would become the property of The Trust. This means that the family will borrow the house and in the future it will benefit another family/cause. In this regard the project will stand as a legacy to the boys, as well as The Trust.
Whilst this is a single dwelling home the project has been complex. We have been so fortunate that many, many people offered their services free of charge to get to the point of commencing the build, including the architect. A local construction company Dervin & Sons were awarded the contract and building has commenced. Due to Covid-19 restrictions the project has faced delays but the hope is for the boys to be living in the house by late spring 2021.
Whilst there are sufficient funds to finish most of the project additional funds are still required to ensure the boys have everything they need.
