Amy, On The Next Step Of Her Journey
During the Summer of last year, Amy's parents Sue and Roger completed on the sale of their house and the purchase of a new home which will, in time, be better suited to accommodate the long-awaited day when Amy can leave the hospital and residential care system where she has spent almost four years of her life, since it so dramatically changed in April 2014.
One of the contractors who quoted for the job to construct a purpose built annexe to accommodate Amy along with a carer, was Ian Freshwater, Director of Maldon Building Services. After Ian met Sue and Roger at their new property to discuss the possibility of his company being selected to take on the contract, Ian returned to his office inspired and determined to help.
Fast forward several weeks and on January 2nd work began in earnest on-site at Sue and Roger's home. With an incredibly generous spirit, Maldon Building Services have taken on the contract on a non-profitable basis, and Ian, along with Phillipa Webber have approached their contractors and partners to see if they would like to contribute to this very worthwhile project and they, along with ourselves are humbled by the response. Many contractors have generously offered all or part of their services at no charge, or contributed materials or plant hire to this very worthy cause. An overwhelming response from so many remarkable big-hearted people.
Further to this hugely generous work by a wonderful team, on March 24th, Maldon Building Services are organising an obstacle course charity event at Essex Outdoors in Danbury. They have built up a team of over 30 entrants, made up of both employees, family and friends and contractors. They will be gathering sponsors for the event, and every penny made via this route will be contributed to the total sum due from Sue and Roger on completion of Amy’s Annex.
We shall keep you up to date with the progress of Amy’s Annex!
The huge generosity of everyone involved in this project is only matched by our own immense gratitude. Thank you.
Having only been on site for 9 working days, the following contractors have already generously donated part of their time, materials or plant:
