MTS Group help DIY SOS for the Manchester Veterans Project

Thursday 29th October 2015 - MTS Group, MTS Plant Hire & Sales

October 2015 saw BB1 show one of the most moving pieces of TV for some time, the DIY SOS Veterans Special. The two part episode saw Nick Knowels and the team tackle their largest project yet, as they set about the task of renovating the whole of Canada Street in the North of Manchester.

The newly refurbished homes are to be provided to a number of deserving military veterans, in what is equivalent to a small favour when compared to the sacrifices which they have made for all of us.  The TV special followed three military veterans and their family’s all of whom had been affected either mentally or physically by the recent confits in Iraq and Afghanistan. The program progressed to finally show the veterans introduced to their new homes and the extraordinary team of workers who have donated their time to make this all possible in what was an emotional ending to each of the two shows.

We were very pleased when we were asked to help with the project by supplying some of our machinery, and jumped at the chance to be a part of the fantastic venture, even in this small way. It is an honour to be able to help our ex-service men and women in any way, all of whom have given so much for us all.

We provided a brand new Bobcat E17 mini excavator along with two dumpers for use over the course of the project. The compact 1.7T machine was ideal for the landscaping work needed in the gardens of the homes, and could easily access the narrow path behind the properties to get to where it was required.

At MTS Group we are always more than happy to assist a worthy cause, and have previously helped of DIY SOS on other projects across the North of England.
