DIY SOS: The Big Build

Go Plant Limited has donated one of its high-performance Johnston VT651 sweepers to a deserving family from Hopesay, featured on the BBC One series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’.

The sweeper was used throughout the project to ensure the nearby road was free from debris and dirt due to various construction and building works, and again just before the property was unveiled to the family.

“We were thrilled to have played our part in the life-changing transformation to Lucy and Joe’s home,” explained Anthony (Mac) McKenzie, Regional Business Development Manager at Go Plant. “This was an extremely moving project to have been involved in and as a team, we’re always proud to be able to help local families.”

DIY SOS: The Big Build took place in Hopesay, Shropshire, between 9th and 18th February, and many local and leading companies played their individual roles which, collectively, helped make the transformation possible.

Not the first for the Go Plant team to get involved in, its Ellesmere Port site also donated its sweeper during the television show’s project in 2015, which saw the renovation of 62 derelict houses on two streets in Manchester to create housing for veterans, as well as the subsequent creation of a dedicated military village. During the same month, its Barnsley service centre donated its services to DIY SOS for its project in Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham, which saw the team of Purple Shirts help to rebuild a family’s home to facilitate a place where they could care for a loved one.
