Builder steps in to help resident in wheelchair
A Cromwell builder worked day and night to ensure a wheelchairbound woman could move into her new home in time for Christmas. Central Otago Living Options Trust chief executive Alison Wildey said the organisation was left in the lurch when the builder they had arranged to convert a double garage into a fully accessible, selfcontained unit for the Alexandra woman moved to Australia. JSB Contracting Cromwell owner Jason (Digger) Fiebig stepped into the breach and, along with his staff, has worked until dark each night and at weekends to make it happen. ‘‘These are the good sorts of Central – the amazing spirit of these people,’’ Ms Wildey said. The
unit would be part of a house the trust recently bought in Alexandra’s Molyneux Estate, with the help of a number of grants.
Good sort: Cromwell builder Jason Fiebig, of JSB Contracting, was working day and night to ensure a wheelchair-bound Alexandra woman could move into her specially modified unit in time for Christmas.
