The Fat Lads on Bikes along with Aspect Plastering and Building have recently undertaken yet another challenge but this time it was done to support a young family in Saltburn.

We carried out a large Dormer Loft Conversion after the previous builder stole a substantial deposit without even attempting to start work on the project! 

Due to the build being stalled the couples 5 year old son Theo had to make do with a makeshift bedroom in the dining room.

With the kind help and support of local suppliers and contractors we were able to complete the build within budget and would like to thank Micheal Harrison Roofing especially for installing the Firestone roof completely free of charge!, we would also like to thank Gary Mcmanus of Burton Roofing Merchants (Stockton Branch) who agreed to provide the materials needed at better than cost price to help this young family complete this project.

Fat Lads on Bikes commissioned artist Dan Walls to paint a fantastic Spiderman wall mural on Theo's bedroom wall.

And finally a massive thank you to the Ellen Timney Foundation who have supplied bedroom furniture and accessories to make Theo's bedroom extra special.

Volunteers transformed Millie’s room to include a sensory room and wet room - they also had a special surprise for Millie’s brother and sister

After three days of hard work a group of ‘Fat’ lads and lasses have transformed the home of a little girl born with severe disabilities.

For the past seven months, fundraising force Fat Lads on Bikes have teamed up with firms from across Teesside to help bring joy to lives of Millie-Mai Mann and her family.

Millie, from South Bank, Middlesbrough, suffered brain damage at birth and was given a life expectancy of only five years. Now aged nine, Millie can’t walk, can’t communicate and as she grows up, she requires more space and specialist equipment to live a better quality of life.

Millie’s parents, James and Aimee Mann, who describe Millie as the happiest little girl they know, have been trying to raise the funds to build their daughter a specialist wet-room and sensory room through their gofundme page With Millie-ions Of Love.

When Teesside fundraisers Fat lads on Bikes heard about their plight, they took it upon themselves to not only raise the funds for wet-room and sensory rooms but to build them as well.

And this week, all the hard work paid off when the Fat Lads were finally able to reveal the finished article.

Neal Bullock from Fat Lads on Bikes said: “We did it the whole thing over three days. Everyone worked flat out completely voluntarily.

“We moved the whole family out to Redworth Hall who put them up for three days - complimentary - they treated them like VIPs, we can’t thank them enough.

“We worked so hard to get everything finished but when I saw Millie’s face when she came in - it was worth it.

“Doing this has been such a big part of my life, when I got home the night we finished I just broke down in tears.”

Not only did the volunteers transform Millie’s room to include a sensory room and wet room, they also had a special surprise for Millie’s brother James, 12, and sister Ebonie, 11.

 

Work completed on sensory bedroom and wet room for Millie-Mai Mann in South Bank which was funded and converted by charity group Fat Lads on Bikes.

Neal said: “We didn’t want to leave James and Ebonie out so we completely redecorated their rooms as well.

“Ebonie’s is a real girl’s room while James’ is a proper gamer room.”

All of the materials and labour were provided free of charge by local firms and individuals.

Neal, 42, said: “All of the carpets were donated by Peter Maley, the materials for the wetroom were provided free-of-charge by MB Decor and all the paint was given to us by Crown Paints.

“We need to thank everyone who came and helped make this happen, especially Dave Kay, Shaun Cooper of Aspect Plastering and Guy Powell who were amazing.

“We also need to thank Polyflor UK, The Finlay Cooper Fund, Pinnacle Flooring, Ellen Timney Foundation,”

Millie’s dad James, 43, said: “It’s unbelievable what they’ve done for us - they must all have hearts of gold,

“When she saw it, Millie was taking it all in and looking around.

“I can’t thank them enough, Neal is an absolute legend.”

Mum, Aimee, 32, said: “It’s absolutely amazing. When the kids saw their rooms it just blew them away.”
