British Ceramic Tile donates tiles to BBC One's DIY SOS veterans' village
British Ceramic Tile has donated a selection of ITS Colour Compendium tiles, adhesive and grout to a new veterans community that is being built in Manchester and featured on BBC One's two part programme 'DIY SOS: The Big Build Veterans' Special'.
The Colour Compendium tiles were used in the transformation of eight existing houses into two larger adapted residential homes for veterans and their families, along with one further home and a specialist veteran support and advice centre.
Caryn Clarke, marketing director at British Ceramic Tile says: "This was a great opportunity for British Ceramic Tile to get involved in such a worthwhile project and give something back to the people who have served our country.
"We were delighted to supply tiles, as well as the grout and adhesive, so that the project could provide ex-servicemen with a suitable home that meets their individual requirements following their time in active service."
The aim of the project is to create a veterans' housing community within the existing community, including an advice centre with space for therapy and counselling, provided by Walking With The Wounded. A further 62 properties on the street will also undergo a facelift with all fronts rendered and new front doors and windows.
British Ceramic Tile offers the very best of British design together with quality, value and a serious approach to social and environmental responsibilities. The company supplies an extensive range of ceramic, porcelain and natural stone wall and floor tiles as well as glass and decorative products to major multiples, national and regional house developers and the trade, including independent tile retailers, contractors and specifiers.
