West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, (24th October 2011) – Siddall &Hilton Products, a leading manufacturer of commercial and industrial fencing, has helped restore the Norris Green Youth Centre in Liverpool as part of a special edition of BBC’s DIY SOS: The Big Build for Children in Need.
Due to be aired in November in the run up to the annual Children in Need appeal night, the programme calls upon the local community trades and companies to pull together to fully renovate the centre, which will provide better facilities and hopefully attract new members.
The centre is situated in one of the most deprived areas of Liverpool, suffering from social unrest, high crime and unemployment levels. The project was the biggest build the DIY SOS team has ever taken on, with just ten days to complete it. A project of this size would normally take between six and eight months to complete and would cost in the region of £1m.
Siddall & Hilton Products donated 70 panels of 2.4 metre high polyester powder coated anti-climb high security mesh to secure the perimeter of the facility. The mesh was specified as the ideal high security solution to previous issues with unauthorised access and vandalism, whilst avoiding the imposing appearance of razor wire.
Siddall & Hilton Products Sales & Commercial Manager, Steve Cockerham, said: “The Norris Green Youth Centre has done some amazing work transforming the lives of local young people and steering them away from crime. They have at least 50 children and young people attending every evening and they are open seven days a week. Siddall & Hilton is a long established, family owned business which was more than happy to make a donation to this very worthwhile project and we are delighted to have made a contribution to the lives of those who use the centre.”
The Norris Green Youth Centre is committed to offering young people from the area a chance to achieve and gain positive life experiences. Its programme is designed to help young people broaden their horizons, develop skills, competences, confidence and positive attitudes that will equip them for life and provide a pathway to further education, employment and active community citizenship.
