DIY SOS: The Big Build – Bangor

Centrobed donated 2 beautiful beds to a family in Bangor, Ireland.

For the first time ever, the DIY SOS team head to Bangor in Northern Ireland, the childhood hometown of our build manager Mark Miller, to help the McCreight family.

Mandy McCreight suffers from a variety of medical issues, including Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, postural orthostic tachycardia syndrome, fibromyalgia and gastroparesis, which leaves her bed-bound over 80 per cent of the time. She often stays upstairs in her bedroom for days at a time, as the stairs are too difficult to negotiate. She is isolated in her bedroom and missing out on family life. Ben and Kara also suffer from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and have mobility issues. Dad Davey looks after everyone, but now he is suffering from a back injury. The entire family are under real stress, and the house is not wheelchair friendly, making the situation unbearable.

The DIY SOS team, aided by local designer Suzanne Sundara-Garuda and hundreds of volunteers, reconfigure the whole house, creating a future-proof home that will bring this family back together.
