Band of Builders welcomes Lincoln College support

January 19 2018

Lincoln College welcomed Adam Smith, founder of the charitable organisation Band of Builders (BOB) to see how construction students and the college could get involved in future projects.

Adam set up BOB following the diagnosis of his employee of 10-years, Keith, with terminal Cancer.

On learning of the terminal diagnosis, Adam, a Lincolnshire-based landscaper by trade, used his contacts in the trade to complete an ambitious full house renovation for Keith, using donated time and materials from other local tradesmen and businesses.

Since completing the first project, Adam and his Band of Builder have stretched their networks and influence overseas and are continuing with a string of projects including community improvements and personal courses.

Inspired by Adam and Keith’s story, and by the exceptional support to the BOB projects to date, Lincoln College are now looking at how students and staff can extend their skills and generosity to support local projects.

Adam said “I have been lucky enough to work with the SAS of the building world… with a newly found community of like-minded traders that just want to do more and more for others.”

“The skies the limit.”

Paul Barnes, Carpentry & Joinery Lecturer for School of Professional Industries at Lincoln College, whom has himself contributed to a local BOB project recently said: “Adam’s motivation and enthusiasm for the BOB projects is clear to see, and with the talent and skill we have here at the college from both students and staff, I hope we can develop a plan to work collaboratively for the benefit of the BOB projects, the wider community and our learners. It is a very exciting opportunity.”
