Nick Knowles and the team issue a call to arms and recruit friends, family and local trades to help transform the homes of families across Britain.
This week the DIY SOS team join forces with two world-famous British institutions: Great Ormond Street Hospital For Children and the Royal Horticultural Society's Chelsea Flower Show, as Nick Knowles and the team transport Chris Beardshaw's gold medal-winning garden across London and crane it over buildings and rebuild on the hospital's roof top.
Despite the brilliant world-class care, there's nowhere private outside for the families to escape from the constant noise, bustle and bright lights of this huge hospital, which is why the DIY SOS team and Chris Beardshaw have taken on this hugely ambitious build. The logistics are tricky and the volunteers emotional, but they hope to offer the many brave families a bespoke, lush roof top garden as a space of calm respite.
Nick Knowles, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and the ‘Purple Shirts' team venture to Blackpool to tackle DIY SOS: Million Pound Build for BBC Children in Need.
This special DIY SOS looks at some of the lives of the nation's young carers supported by Blackpool Carers Centre, which receives funding from BBC Children in Need.
The programme features 11 year-old Tyanna and 10 year-old Gracie, who cook, bathe and generally care for their disabled mother Suzanne, a former nurse who was diagnosed with osteoporosis, as well as their dad Sean, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.
The DIY SOS team and hundreds of volunteers work tirelessly to renovate an enormous neglected site owned by the Carers Centre, from a dilapidated building to an unrecognisable, inspiring and colourful base for Tyanna, Gracie and many other youths with caring responsibilities.
Nick Knowles, Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen and hundreds of volunteer builders help a 17-year-old girl whose Ehlers-Danlos syndrome has left her trapped in hospital.
When 36-year-old Terry Guest, father of two daughters, had a catastrophic brain injury, he was left with severe disabilities. As his house was unsuitable for him, the only care available was an old-people's dementia care home, where he remained for several years. In need of more day-to-day care and a place of his own, his sister Tracey stepped in to offer help, but her house was also unsuitable. Now DIY SOS and their team of generous South Yorkshire volunteers and suppliers are stepping in to adapt Tracey's home and also, in a DIY SOS first, build Terry his very own separate pad at the end of the garden. Battling adverse Yorkshire weather, the team's electrician Billy's tricks with the electrics and a massive misjudgement in ordering materials, this unique build definitely tests the team's resolve.
