Two years ago, with the help of Prince William and Prince Harry, DIY SOS launched their most ambitious project yet with partners Haig Housing, Walking With The Wounded, Manchester City Council, national contractors and hundreds of trades people and small businesses – transforming a derelict street into a community for veterans and local people. It created new homes for ex-service persons Haig Housing let out at a charitable rent and a veterans support centre run by WWTW.
With the project almost complete, Nick Knowles and the team returned to finish the last remaining home for amputee and single dad Simon Flores whose foot was blown off by a roadside bomb during a patrol in Iraq.
