It is a dream come true

An eight-year-old disabled boy’s dream has finally come true – four years after a fundraising drive for him first kicked off.

Logan Fox, who lives with his mum Lianne Dale in Liddle Drive, Bo’ness, was born with cerebral palsy which means he has to use a wheelchair permanently.

His mum has been fighting to ensure that her son can lead as independent a life as possible.

But it was never going to be an easy task as the work was estimated to cost £30,000.

The Gazette has regularly reported on the family’s fundraising efforts in the last few years.

Scores of locals, as well as Bo’ness Fire Station and The Clydesdale Bank, have mucked in to help.

Thanks to their efforts, the new extension – containing a bedroom and walk-in wet-floor bathroom with hoist – has been completed.

Extra wide doors and an open plan area on the ground floor of the property means Logan can now get around the house with ease.

Michael McCaffrey, of RWM construction, then added the ‘icing on the cake’ by slabbing a level area in the rear garden.

And the builder landscaped the remainder so that Logan can also now enjoy the great home.

Lianne said: “I’m so grateful to everyone who helped make this dream a reality.

“There were struggles, at times, but with the generosity of so many people we have now made it.”
