Morris and the DIY SOS appeal
Teams of volunteers from our Morris Property, Joinery and Site Machinery businesses answered a TV appeal recently to take part in a life-changing project to help a father and daughter transform their Shropshire home. The story of the appeal for the programme DIY SOS appeared on BBC One at 8pm on Thursday 9th June.
We donated generators, lighting towers, pumps and the skills of a labourer and two carpenters to help give widower Joe Grafton and daughter Lucy, aged seven, a dream house at Hopesay near Craven Arms.
In case you have missed this compulsive viewing on BBC TV, it attracts up to 9 million viewers per episode on BBC prime time. Presented by Nick Knowles and his team of Purple Shirts, the show takes on ambitious building projects in just nine days with the help of local tradespeople, to help truly deserving families transform their homes – and lives.
Amanda Chappell, Quality & Environmental Manager at Four Ashes summed up how emotional and worthwhile the experience had been:
“It was fantastic and humbling to be representing the company with manpower and products. Our lighting towers shed light on the project, enabling work to carry on when night fell, with a gentle hum our generators ran the tools and powered the catering. It was so wonderful to do something for such a deserving cause which has literally changed the life of this father and daughter.”
