A teenage from Mablethorpe has had his life turned around thanks to the generosity of the Mablethorpe community

Luke Hurren, 13, was in desperate need of having his home adapted in order for his independance to be restored after it was taken away due to the deterioration in his muscle condition.

Luke has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a condition that causes progressive muscle weakness.

The Hurren family needed to find the remaining £17,000 needed to secure a disabilities facilities grant before this estimated cost quoted to them went up. The funds were needed in order for their home to be fitted with the amenities that would give Luke back his the independence.

Thanks to the support from their local community the funds were raised thanks to a number of sponsored charity events, raffles and auctions spreading throughout 2013, and the work began to adapt their home in November 2013.

The adaptations to the Hurren family home were officially completed last week (Wednesday, March 5) and Luke couldn’t be happier.

Here is a video clip of how his new rooms and shows all of the amenities that have been installed thanks to the money that was raised by you, the community of Mablethorpe.

Plus Luke Hurren and his dad Stuart express their thanks for all your generosity.
