and live on Freeview channel 276
A special episode of DIY SOS on BBC 1 shows presenter Nick Knowles and his team of builders and decorators transforming a new counselling and therapy centre for traumatically bereaved children and young people.
Having helped millions of homes solve damp, condensation and mould problems in the last 30 years, the firm knew exactly how to improve the situation for children who are struggling after the death of a loved one.
Located off Penny Pot Lane, the Harrogate-based ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent donated six ventilation units to the BBC’s flagship home renovation programme.
BBC One’s DIY SOS: The Big Build for Children in Need shows the creation of Treetops Hospice in Risley in Derbyshire – a purpose-built counselling and therapy centre - in just ten days.
The EnviroVent ECO DMEV units will gently ventilate the home to transform a stagnant and stale atmosphere into a fresh, healthy and condensation-free environment.
The completed centre is expected to support hundreds of young people in difficult circumstances every year.
James Garland, EnviroVent’s Key Account Manager – Specification, said: “It was fantastic to be able to support such a wonderful cause.
"Indoor air quality is so important in keeping people healthy and ensuring mould is not able to form and cause an issue.”
BBC Children in Need has been helping children and young people in every corner of the UK be the best they can be for more than 50 years.
