Wellingborough company Hampton Steel helped a special Children in Need DIY SOS project.

The company helped the crew from the TV show and hundreds of volunteers build a new centre for the Little Miracles charity in Peterborough.

The centre is used by children with special needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions and their parents.

Over the course of a week in October, led by the DIY SOS team, Hampton Steel Ltd and Plant Fencing Contractors Ltd donated their expertise, products and labour to transform the Little Miracles centre for a BBC One special DIY SOS: The Big Build in aid of Children in Need.

Hampton Steel Ltd donated its green plastic coated chain link fencing for the centre’s new onsite mini football pitch; a safe haven for children to run around in, let off some steam and practise their ball skills. The fencing was erected by Plant Fencing Contractors Ltd.

Marketing manager at Hampton Steel, Louise Grayson, said: “To have been a part of such a worthy project was a really wonderful experience. The expectation and then sheer joy on the faces of the parents, children and helpers involved with Little Miracles as they were presented with their new entre was incredibly rewarding.

“I think all came away bearing a tear and a smile due to what had been achieved in such a short space of time.”
