DIY SOS – Weston-super-Mare

By April 18, 2019 No Comments

We are excited to say we have recently taken part in the BBC TV programme DIY SOS.

We want to say a massive THANK YOU to the 5 ACL staff members Paul, Gheorghe, Catalin, James and Jamie who gave up their time with their families on a Saturday, to help someone else’s family. Thanks also to our Operations Director Dan and Senior Contracts Manager John who were on waste runs, and our Contracts Manager Hayley who kept the team fed and watered during the day.

We were proud to be able to help a very deserving family from Weston-super-Mare, who have had their house completely transformed by the DIY SOS team, and a mass of around 300 volunteers who are also gave up their time and offered their skills.

We removed 90m• of Textured Coating ceilings throughout the property, prior to the Big Build to kicking off.

We would also like to thank our very generous suppliers who helped us over the weekend by donating Welfare Units, Skips, Consumables, Air Testing, Equipment and Scaffold Boards! (Empire, Acumen Waste, G&L Consultancy, HSS, YHC and County Scaffolding).

10 days later, some of the ACL team were lucky enough to go to the “reveal” day. The family were very emotional having seen the house that has been created for them by an amazing group of volunteers from across all different trades, and we’re so delighted to have been able to play a small part in helping them have a new forever home, where their children will always be safe.

We look forwards to seeing the show when it’s aired, hopefully later in the year.

We couldn’t resist a quick photo while we were there….
