Balcas: one of Britain's and Ireland's largest wood products suppliers

DIY SOS – The Big Reveal

June 28th, 2019

It was an honour for Balcas to be invited along to the Big Reveal in Bangor, Co Down yesterday, following the completion of the BBC DIY SOS Big Build which had been underway for the previous 10 days.

Balcas supplied sleepers and fencing to complete the garden design which Mum, Mandy described as ‘the cherry on the cake’. The McCreight family of 4, live with complex health needs that resulted in them living in isolation from each other but following a complete refit of their house, they can restart their lives together again.

It was an emotional experience for all involved and presenter Nick Knowles paid tribute to the trades people and suppliers from across Northern Ireland who pulled together with true community spirit to make the family’s dream a reality.

As the programme does not air until 20 20, we have to keep photos of the finished product under wraps but we promise you’ll be wowed when you watch.

This was a tremendous opportunity for us under our #BalcasInTheCommunity initiative and we were delighted to help in the small way we did. Meeting fellow suppliers and especially the folk who worked 24/7 to build this family a future was a really heart-warming and proud moment.
