Gaysha answered the call gladly last month when asked by Addagrip to join them in installing the resin bound surfacing for the BBC’s DIY SOS Grenfell Special.
The project to build a gym and multi-use community space for Grenfell Tower residents cost £2 million and 9 weeks to complete. The Dale Youth Amateur Boxing Club, which used to be housed on the 2nd floor of Grenfell Tower, had a nationwide reputation for its work with young boxers, but was destroyed in the fire.
Gaysha operatives joined hundreds of volunteers to participate in the build, using materials donated by Addagrip. The team installed 340 sqm of 6mm Addaset Lucerne Silver under the Westway Flyover, where the Community Centre is situated.
Gaysha was keen to be involved in this project in order to help give something back to this brave community, that has suffered such a terrible tragedy but has remained strong. The DIY SOS Grenfell Special is scheduled to air in two parts either later in 2018 or next year.
