EATON Donates Essential Equipment To DIY SOS: The Big Build In Aid Of BBC Children In Need

Eaton’s Electrical Sector has donated a large percentage of electrical equipment needed for DIY SOS: The Big Build’s biggest ever project in aid of BBC Children in Need. The renovation of the run-down Norris Green Youth Centre in north Liverpool is being undertaken as part of this year’s Children in Need campaign and will form the basis for a one-off special television programme to be broadcast in November.

The Norris Green Youth Centre is a focus for optimism and hope in the area, which suffers from high unemployment, high crime and gang violence. The work done by the staff at the centre is already helping young people to broaden their horizons and develop skills and positive attitudes, but the centre’s premises, which are more than 50 years old, are currently in a very poor state.

The goal of the DIY SOS: The Big Build project is to remedy this by implementing improvements that include replacing the roof, installing three mezzanine floors, fitting a new kitchen, renovating the toilets, creating new disabled toilets, and much more. As part of the work, the whole of the existing electrical installation in the building will be removed and replaced with modern equipment that provides enhanced safety and versatility.

To support the project, and to enable the centre to be equipped with high quality electrical systems, Eaton has donated electrical equipment worth thousands of pounds. This includes the main distribution board and three sub-distribution boards, as well as a wide range of switches and sockets. All of the distribution boards are fitted with metering facilities that will enable the centre to accurately monitor and control its energy usage, as an aid to minimising its energy costs and carbon footprint.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be able to contribute to such an interesting and worthwhile project,” said Alan Birks, National Sales Manager, Eaton. “We wish the DIY SOS: The Big Build team every success with the huge challenge it is facing, and we hope that the equipment we’ve donated will play a very useful role in the centre’s operations and activities for a long time to come.”

Norris Green Youth Centre was originally built in 1959 as an Old Boys’ Club and its buildings have been described as “two aircraft hangars placed side by side”, which means that a lot of work is needed to make them convenient and comfortable for today’s purposes.

Nevertheless, the centre is already managing to operate seven days a week, and is currently attracting more than 50 children and young people every evening. When the renovation is complete, the centre plans to expand its curriculum and attract new members, enabling it to transform the lives of even more young people.
