Gloucestershire based Drain Doctor were one of 100 local tradesmen who lent a hand as programme was filmed in Devon
A father was brought to tears after a Gloucestershire business, Drain Doctor, along with the DIY SOS team and 100 local tradesmen, came together to transform a family home.
Gloucestershire based Drain Doctor, a drain clearance and emergency plumbing franchise business, lent a hand to a newly adapted home in Barnstaple, Devon, to be featured on BBC DIY SOS The Big Build.
And it wasn’t the first time they have helped out.
This is the third time the company, which covers Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury, Gloucester and Stroud has donated its services to the Nick Knowles hosted show.
In nine days the DIY SOS team and local trades people and volunteers transformed the Collins’ family home.
Two of Jan and Lucy Collin’s triplet daughters have a rare kidney disease which means they need dialysis in Bristol several days a week, but now the girls can have dialysis at home.
People in and around Gloucestershire are well used to the difference Nick Knowles can make to their lives and are loyal viewers of the programme.
Among the people who have been helped out by DIY SOS are disabled athlete Scott Jones from Cheltenham seriously ill Antonia Payne-Cheney from Eckington, near Tewkesbury and paralysed dad Ben Wernham from Avening, near Stroud .
Carl Butterfield, director of Drain Doctor Gloucestershire said: “It’s been a huge pleasure to have donated our services yet again to another worthy cause.”
He added: “Despite being based over two hours away, we’re thrilled to have been involved in this project and are very touched to have played a part in creating a positive impact on the lives of these amazing families.

“The Big Reveal was very emotional for everyone and it was great to meet the family who are now able to start rebuilding their lives thanks to the army of local tradespeople invovled.
“We look forward to partaking in more build projects in the future and hope to come to the aid of even more families in need of asisstance.”
