DIY SOS – Children In Need

To Help The DIY SOS And Children In Need Team Complete A Life changing Project For Young People In East Yorkshire, Which Transformed An Empty Field Into An Adventure Camping Site We Donated:

  • 60 x 76mm x 1600mm Ground Screws
  • 400 linear meters of 6” x 2” C24 Treated Timber Joists
  • 250 labour hours

This year’s Big Build was undertaken for St Michael’s Youth Project in Hull to give children and young people in East Yorkshire the opportunity to escape city life, understand the benefits of nature and improve their wellbeing. The charity supports those aged five to 24 who come from an area of high social and economic disadvantage, while the new facilities aim to challenge poor health and child obesity by improving access to green spaces.

We provided a foundation solution which prevented the need for excavation and concrete in a sloping woodland area, which allowed the project to go ahead without digging up existing vegetation.
The foundation supported a welfare building with an outdoor decking area that would not have been feasible with traditional methods. We also collaborated on this with a M-AR modular building company, which displays the innovative building methods that our technology can bring to the market.

We are extremely proud the Ground Screw Centre were involved as working with the community is an important part of our company’s philosophy. It was a real privilege to have been able to donate our products and services to such a great cause.
