Plumbing and heating merchant PTS have donated taps, sinks, pipes and fittings to help with an ITV “Challenge Anneka” style makeover of a schoolroom in Leicestershire.
The building is used by STEPS, a charity for families who have children with cerebral palsy and similar motor dysfunctions. As the patron of STEPS, health and fitness celebrity Rosemary Conley approached PTS to supply the products for the final phase of construction at St Botolph’s Old School, featured in the TV series. Now complete, the brand new schoolroom offers bathroom and kitchen facilities in addition to a function room, which will provide vital rental income.
PTS marketing manager Nicky Wood said: “When we were approached by Rosemary and the team working on the renovation, we didn’t have to think twice about supplying some products to such a worthy cause.
“Even one of our customers has joined in, providing ceiling heaters for the facility. After the centre was nearly closed down in 2006, it is a great testament to the hard work undertaken by everyone involved that it is has now been fully refurbished.”
Rosemary Conley added: “I am overwhelmed by the interest and support we have received, and I would like to thank everyone for helping make this happen.”
