HSS provided free tool and equipment hire to the BBC's DIY SOS programme to help renovate Richard's home. 

Richard was a proud strong healthy Dad – a police officer, marathon runner and the coach of his sons’ football club. Just over two years ago he had a brain stem stroke and the doctors thought he wouldn’t survive. For 9 months Richard had locked-in syndrome and could only communicate by blinking. After 18 months of physio, he remains paralyzed – with a small amount of movement in one hand and limited speech.

Since the renovation of their home, he is now able to be more independent and has found a sense of worth in the family again. The build has also enabled his wife Jude and 3 young boys a bit more of their Dad back.
