DIY SOS supports The Big Build Children in Need Special

DIY SOS Children in Need 2023 will see Nick Knowles and an army of volunteers create the charity’s new building – from the ground up – in just 10 days.

This special build, which will benefit traumatically bereaved children and families across Derbyshire will enable Treetops Hospice to deliver support in a purpose built building, tailored to the needs of the children who will access it.

DIY SOS is holding a Trades Day at Treetops Hospice in Risley, Derbyshire on Tuesday 15 August.

The build will commence from Monday 11th September – Thursday 21st September 2023.

DIY SOS charitable builds are hugely ambitious and rely on the generosity of trade volunteers and company donations and so is appealing for tradespeople including; electricians, plumbers, carpenters, plasterers and decorators to offer support with the transformation in September.

The team will build bespoke rooms for counselling and complimentary therapy and a multi-functional area.

Nick Knowles, presenter of BBC One’s DIY SOS said: “We have another huge build ahead of us in Derbyshire, which will provide a crucial space for children and their families who are going through some of the toughest times. If you have a trade, a skill, can spare some time to graft or can help us with materials then get in touch. It’ll be a blast.”

In September, DIY SOS will once again partner with Radio 2 to deliver this year’s BBC Children in Need Big Build. In what will be the 10th build for BBC Children in Need, DIY SOS will build a bespoke children’s counselling and therapy centre for Treetops Hospice in Risley, Derbyshire.

Those interested in volunteering as a professional trade or donating product to this charitable build should email: [email protected] before Trades Day to arrange an appointment to meet with the team.

The episode will be broadcast during the BBC Children in Need Appeal week in November.
