Dear Sir/ Madam,
BBC Ones hugely popular DIY SOS: The Big Build is working on a Veteran’s Special and it’s the most ambitious build yet!
The DIY SOS team are redeveloping several homes on a whole street in Manchester specifically for veterans. There will be two lovely family homes and a third house that is for residential training accommodation, as we’ve made links with a local college. The houses will be designed bespoke to the new occupants’ needs and there will also be an on-site support office on the street. We are hoping that this will be the start of a Veterans Village and a blueprint for other councils to follow.
We are working with a housing trust Haig Housing that is run by and for veterans, and the military charity Walking with the Wounded– Prince Harry is their president of expeditions, you might have seen some of the charity events he holds for them on the television. Haig Housing have created a poster with all the application details on it (please see attachment).
We would be grateful if you would consider spreading the word about this project by distributing the poster. It would also be fantastic if this could be featured on your website/ forwarded to your Facebook followers/ newsletter subscribers/ or maybe even tweeting it. We really want to raise awareness of this great opportunity so that people start applying for these incredible new homes.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any enquirers. email is email@example.com.
