Here are all the projects we’ve donated tiles to so far…
20 Sqm donated to Johnny’s Happy Place in Kettering, Northamptonshire
Johnny’s Happy Place is a place for people struggling with their mental health to come, socialise, chat, enjoy good food, and to take part in some art projects if they’re feeling creative! The place was established by the family of Johnny Mackay, a local man who tragically took his life at the age of 29. We provided some metro tiles for their kitchen space.
7 Sqm donated to DIY SOS in Hessle, Yorkshire
Nick Knowles and the team were in Hessle to help transform the home of Darren and his family. Darren was born with water on the brain and severe epilepsy. His father became confined to a wheelchair after suffering injuries as a roofer, and on Boxing Day, the family awoke to find that their mother had passed away in the night. The DIY SOS created a kitchen that was tailored to the family’s needs. We provided hexagon tiles to form a splashback.
5 Sqm donated to Maplefields Circle of Friends in Corby, Northamptonshire
Maplefields Circle of Friends is a community centre based in Corby, Northamptonshire. It sets out to help people with physical and mental health problems, and their families! When we found out they needed some stylish new tiles for their kitchen area, we were delighted to help out.
115 Sqm donated to community swimming pool in Milborne Port, Somerset
After refitting their community swimming pool, the local school in Milborne Port was devastated to find that they had been poorly advised which pool lining to use, and all the tiles they had bought went to waste. We stepped in and donated 115 Sqm of tiles so that they could rebuild the pool.
100 Sqm donated to DIY SOS for Grenfell community project, London
The year after the Grenfell tragedy in which 72 people lost their lives, the DIY SOS team set out to create two community spaces in an attempt to aid the community in getting the right help, and in having a place to get together, talk, and begin to re-build their lives. We provided white metro tiles for the bathroom and shower areas.
55 Sqm donated to DIY SOS for Veteran Village in Manchester
Nick Knowles and the rest of the DIY SOS team took over Canada Street – a row of derelict houses in Manchester – and transformed it into ‘Veteran Village’ – a place for struggling veterans struggling with disabilities, homelessness and PTSD to live and grow a community. We provided tiles for two of the houses.
90 Sqm donated to DIY SOS in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
The team were in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire to help improve the life of Paralympian hopeful 17-year-old Scott Jones. As ever, Walls and Floors were on hand to help out, and we provided cork tiles to create a comfortable, cushioned floor space throughout Scott’s home.
12 Sqm donated to DIY SOS in Basildon, Essex
DIY SOS visited Jenny and Steve; a couple with a severely epileptic son, Brandon, who suffers from between 20 and 30 fits every day. The team set to work transforming their home into a space fit for Brandon’s needs. We provided square glass tiles for their kitchen.
