DIY SOS Grenfell Construction Project
At UHS Group, we are passionate about giving back to the community, so we are honoured to have donated furniture to the BBC DIY SOS Grenfell construction project… I hope you agree it looks fantastic!
The DIY SOS Community Centre project was made possible with the £2 million raised from donations and the effort of many incredible people, ranging from building companies, suppliers and volunteers, it provided the necessary means of accomplishing such a task. After all, the hardship those effected by the distressing occurrence on the 14th of June 2017, deserve nothing less than the generosity they have received thus far.
The community space’s main focus is primarily on improving the quality of life of the residents, through providing opportunities to receive counselling, creating flexible spaces, in hopes of helping them get back on their feet, the ability to mould the space to what each individual person needs is crucial.
Dale Youth Boxing Academy took its premises on the second floor which was lost in the devastating fire, was a big part of the community, keeping children from the streets. George Groves a WBA super middle weight champion and James DeGale an Olympic gold Medalist began their successful careers there as well. Due to the significance it held, a new gym has been built and will hopefully be just as popular.
Overall, those involved with building the community centre not only provided them with shelter and a place to socialise but giving them a chance to move towards a brighter future.
“By building this magnificent gym and giving the Dale Youth Centre a future, we have an army of companies and volunteers to thank!” [Nick Knowles]
