Builder to the rescue after Keighley woman’s shed is burgled twice

A Keighley woman’s twice-burgled shed will be made secure for Christmas thanks to a kind-hearted builder.

Amanda Shepherdson lost all her tools during the first break-in, then the replacement tools were stolen during the second attack.

The contents of the hut should be safe following a planned visit next week by a member of the MyBuilder team.

MyBuilder, a website that links householders with tradesmen, is running its Hero Project in the run-up to Christmas.

The website’s tradesmen offer their services free to people in need, while My Builder covers the cost of materials.

Amanda’s mother Rosie Partridge nominated her daughter and son-in-law Mark, following the trauma of seeing their shed ransacked twice.

The appeal was spotted by Mark Kirk, a stonemason and tiler who works for his uncle’s Heckmondwike firm MEK Building and Construction.

Rosie said her daughter had been overwhelmed to hear the shed was to be repaired and made secure.

She said: “The burglars took Mark’s power tools and saw the first time round. The second time tools were stolen after they had struggled to replace them.”
