EnviroVent Donates Ventilation Units To New Therapy Centre For Young People In Derbyshire

Harrogate-based ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent recently donated six ventilation units to Treetops Hospice in Risley, Derbyshire, which featured on BBC One’s ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build for Children in Need. 

The EnviroVent ECO DMEV units were used within a new counselling and therapy centre for traumatically bereaved children and young people. They will gently ventilate the home to transform a stagnant and stale atmosphere into a fresh, healthy and condensation-free environment.  

In just 11 days, the DIY SOS team and volunteer tradespeople created the purpose-built counselling and therapy centre, which is expected will support hundreds of young people in difficult circumstances every year.

James Garland, EnviroVent’s Key Account Manager – Specification, said: “It was fantastic to be able to provide assistance for such a wonderful cause.  All parties who contributed to this project did some great work, which will benefit the lives of so many children and young people.  Indoor air quality is so important in keeping people healthy and ventilation systems like these ensure condensation and mould is not able to form and cause an issue.”

DIY SOS: The Big Build is the BBC’s flagship home renovation programme; running for more than 20 years. The award-winning show, presented by Nick Knowles and his team, takes on Big Builds in limited time and relies on the generosity of the local community of tradespeople and suppliers, to help transform the lives of truly deserving projects and individuals.

Every year, Treetops Hospice provides over 900 counselling sessions for local children, who are struggling after the death of a loved one.  BBC Children in Need has supported its children’s services for over 10 years, helping hundreds of bereaved children and families during that time through counselling and emotional support, along with crucial training for staff members.  This year the hospice celebrates its 40 anniversary.
