Thank you from BBC DIY SOS "The Big Build"

9th May 2012

Message received from BBC with regards to D West & Sons assisting DIY SOS "The Big Build".

"I wanted to drop you a line to say a MASSIVE thank you for my assistance with our project in Huntingdon. It is no understatement to say that without the generosity of people like you we really couldn't have done the job and we can't thank-you enough".

"I have spoken to Julie and the family a number of times since the reveal day and they are still overwhelmed by it all. They are truly delighted with their new home. They are now living in a house that is safe and warm; the children are spending much more time playing togehter and enjoying inviting their friends over for sleepovers. Julie says the house is now much calmer and they look forward to spending their time at home together. The part you played in the transformation was integral to it's success".

With all the very best wishes,
