Robert’s story

Robert was tragically killed whilst working on a construction site early one morning back in October 2016.  A colleague was driving a truck and accidentally crushed Robert, resulting in fatal injuries. He died moments later, before the emergency services reached the site. Robert left his partner, Caroline, and three daughters, Samantha 13, Rebecca nine and Jennifer, five. The Lighthouse Charity set up a just giving page for the family and to date, just over £100,000 has been raised through various fundraising events and donations from the construction community to support this young family.


A message to daddy from your three daughters

“My daddy was the best he used to call me bubbles, my dad was my hero, my best friend, he was always doing his best for us.  My dad did his best for us all, we look up into the sky at night to wish you a goodnight, you were and always will be special to us, you were our rock. The memories we have we will always have, he made our life complete we are heartbroken you are not here anymore to play and make us laugh. We miss your jokes, I know you are looking down on us and keeping us strong, I know you wouldn’t want us to be sad so we just want you to know that we will keep our heads held high and do you proud, love you always daddy, sleep tight goodnight”.

love your three daughters xxxx
