Fifteen electricians from HE Simm took part in a project in Liverpool that was included in last Friday’s Children in Need coverage by the BBC.
Highlights from DIY SOS: The Big Build for Children in Need 2011 were shown, featuring the renovation of a dilapidated youth centre in one of Liverpool’s most deprived areas.
HE Simm electricians installed a new electrical system, which required a complete re-wire of the facility.
They worked worked alongside several local companies to transform the building which will now provide 21st century facilities.
Managing director Gareth Simm said: “As a local company trading over 60 years we wanted to make a contribution to the community and were delighted to be able to get involved.
“The community centre on Townsend Avenue has a long history and it’s great that the refurb means many more young people will get the chance to benefit from the potentially life changing opportunities it can now offer.
“We’re really proud of all the staff who worked literally non stop throughout the project. They really enjoyed getting stuck in and meeting Billy Byrne, Mark Millar, Nick Knowles and all the DIY SOS team.”
