Earth Cycle are once again proud to have donated product to the flagship BBC One programme DIY SOS: The Big Build, which relies on the support and help of local tradespeople and businesses to transform the homes and gardens of deserving people, many of whom have suffered life-changing injury.
The aim of the most recent project, based locally to Earth Cycle in Arundel, was to help mother of four Amanda Newton after her brakes failed whilst cycling down Bury Hill. The accident left Amanda paralysed and a wheelchair user for the rest of her life, meaning her existing house no longer met her day-to-day needs.
The nine-day project involved a renovation of the garden to make it accessible for Amanda. Earth Cycle’s Topsoil Supreme and Ornamental Bark were used to fill raised beds at the front and back of the house including surrounding a new shed.
Not only this but the Earth Cycle team donated their time and spent several days on site helping with everything from loading soil to painting the garden fence. Changes to Amanda’s home included the widening of doorways, adapting the kitchen, as well as creating a wet room and an accessible bedroom.
