October 30, 2019

SPAR colleagues volunteer for DIY SOS Project

A team of Blakemore Retail colleagues has donated 256 hours to a community project set to feature on the BBC's DIY SOS television programme next week.

A total of 34 employees from SPAR stores across the West Midlands region and beyond volunteered their time to helping a deserving family from Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, transform their home.

Stores involved were Bromsgrove, Catshill, Wombourne, Batchley, Lawnswood, Kidderminster, Hagley, Droitwich, Fernhill Heath, Warndon, Tenbury Wells, Ludlow, Hillsborough and Terrace Road.

In addition to time, the business donated refreshments to keep the workers on-site well fed and watered.  

The project will feature on BBC One's DIY SOS: The Big Build programme on Wednesday 20th November at 8.00pm. 

More information on the episode is available on the BBC iPlayer:
