Construction is now underway for the wheelchair-friendly home of Cpl. Bill Kerr, who lost both legs and his left arm while serving in Afghanistan.

Kerr’s wife Tracy and his daughters Zoe, 10, and Abigail, 6, say they look forward to moving onto the five-acre property located on Nickel Offset Road in Chelmsford. The trio took part in an official ground-breaking ceremony Monday morning.

The Home For a Hero project has raised $260,000 toward the building and furnishing of the home, aided in part by the Hike for a Hero fundraiser held last October.

Photos and news regarding the house will be available for viewing at www.homeforahero.ca. Donations are still being accepted through the website or can be dropped off at the RWDSU Union Centre, 230 Regent St. in Sudbury.
