REMONDIS and DIY SOS
The episode of DIY SOS was filmed in Newcastle and a local family were given a life-changing opportunity to rebuild their home and lives. The family live in a 1950s build semi-detached house and did not have enough space or the correct facilities to take care of their children.
The plan was to build a single story extension at the rear of the property and convert the garage (under permitted development) into a bedroom and separate bathroom to accommodate specialist equipment and provide a safe space.
“There’s been a fantastic turnout from people in the area and the greater area, people coming from all over to join in. Everybody seems to know what they are doing, suppliers have been brilliant at providing us with all the kit we need: there’s a really good vibe going on and we’re sure we can make a difference for this family.” – Nick Knowles
It is amazing how something like this is able to bring hundreds of trades and suppliers, from all different industries, together for a good cause. It is astounding to see how the community was able to get together and transform the family’s home and wonderful to be part of such a great community in the North East.
