AMP’s Forest Fuels Joins DIY SOS Party to Welcome Home Family

Nine days of frenetic activity came to a close, as Forest Fuels, the country’s leading supplier of premium grade and RHI compliant wood chip and wood pellet, travelled to see the big reveal of one of highest profile projects the company has contributed to – a DIY SOS transformation.

The company played an integral part of the home overhaul in Telford, Shropshire, which saw a traditional home transformed – inside and out – to better suit the needs of a family facing challenging needs. Focussed purely on the outdoor makeover, the experts supplied and delivered the premium grade wood chip which was used to put the finishing touches to all of the bordered areas and planted beds in the swish new garden.

Dave Myatt, marketing manager, from Forest Fuels, said, “The sun was out to greet everyone as the Forest Fuels team landed. The atmosphere and community spirit was outstanding, the street was filled with people all with the same warm welcome for the family. It really was an emotional day and one no one in the area will forget in a hurry.

Beginning with an appeal from his school, Wrockwardine Wood Juniors, where head teacher Julie Henry launched a fundraising campaign to help the family, she then organised a mass appeal by pupils to the life-changing show. On top of raising a huge amount of money and drumming up support locally, it also meant that the campaign was able to recruit further help, so was destined to hit the ground running.

The revealing of the striking house transformation is to remain secret until the show is screened sometime over the coming months, but the scenes outside the house when the family emerged to say thank you were highly emotional.

Young Matthew even had his own very special thank you which will all be revealed when the show airs.
