The programme, which airs on BBC1, sees a team of volunteers transform run down properties. The Liverpool challenge was a special for the BBC’s annual Children in Need appeal and was 10 times larger than any other project completed by the programme.
The Deutsche Bank employees donated £1000 to the project, the renovation of the Norris Green Youth Centre in Liverpool. As well as donating the cheque from Corporate Citizenship the team also got their hands dirty and volunteered their time to help with the renovation.
During the day the group from Liverpool including, John Phelan, Rachel Gradden, Tom Whitehurst, Jane Hampson, Kris Baker and Steve Price, joined in to help paint, dig, construct fences, clean and move vast amounts of building material.
The programme airs in November as part of BBC’s annual Children in Need appeal.
