The latest episode of ‘DIY SOS: The Million Pound Build for Children in Need’ has been supported by Marley, after the company supplied its JB CitiDeck solution to the project free of charge.
‘DIY SOS: The Million Pound Build’ - a special for the BBC’s charity Children in Need - saw the team work to renovate a Victorian house into a new, much needed, young carers’ facility in the legendary seaside resort of Blackpool. The Blackpool Carers Centre project is the show’s biggest charitable build to date, and was headed up by renowned interior designer Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen.
The team called upon Marley to help in the construction of a circular decking area installed in the grounds of the centre. Measuring 25m² and with a circumference of over 15m, JB CitiDeck in a robust oak finish - with its smooth profiled boards, which feature two non-slip inserts - was installed. The new build also incorporates a child-friendly kitchen and open plan play spaces, as well as a woodland garden adventure and an allotment, providing a safe a supportive environment for the young carers to enjoy a bit more child-time.
Charlotte Hughes, Product Manager at Marley, explains more about the project and why Marley was delighted to help out. She says: “Giving back to the community is something which is important to us as a business. So, the chance to be involved in such a huge project for BBC’s Children in Need was a fantastic opportunity".
The episode of ‘DIY SOS: The Million Pound Build for Children in Need’ aired on BBC on 17 November 2016, and will be available to watch until 17 December.
