Meter engineers from Energy Assets were privileged to support the BBC’s DIY SOS team in turning a parish building in Blackburn into safe accommodation for the area’s young homeless as part of Children in Need project.
The engineers worked alongside npower to upgrade the electricity supply and install new gas and power meters to help create a centre, to be run by Nightsafe, to alleviate the plight of young people aged 16 – 24. The programme aired two days before the 2019 Children in Need appeal.
Said Dave Sing, Group Managing Director (Assets) at Energy Assets: “We were extremely proud to lend our expertise to this project, especially as it was for such a worthy cause just a few miles down the road from our offices in Darwen. It was inspiring to see so many companies come together to help homeless young people in the Blackburn area.”
