  • LIVERPOOL MAN GETS A NEW KITCHEN THANKS TO KINDHEARTED TRADESMEN! HD

    2,339 views 5 months ago
    For two years single dad Paul Currie has been struggling to look after his 4-year-old daughter in a house with no proper cooker, no kitchen units, no fridge and no washing machine…
    ...and it looked like that was never going to change.

    The 46 year old from Macdonald Road, Wavertree had lost his job and cash was short. He desperately needed a new kitchen but he simply couldn’t afford it.
    Then he spotted an online opportunity and posted his story as part of Britain’s Worst Kitchen competition on MyBuilder.com, the tradesman’s website. The prize was a £3000k+ kitchen makeover.
    Paul made it to the last 12, securing nearly 2000 of the 13000 votes cast overall in the competition but in the end he didn’t win.
    He was devastated as were his friends and family.
    The website team felt strongly about Paul too and decided they couldn’t just walk away. Having put aside some additional cash, they linked up with some of their local tradesmen and local building suppliers and pretty soon a runner-up kitchen plan had been put in place.
    On his birthday Paul was officially ‘given’ his new kitchen and shared tea and cake with the tradesmen who built it and his family!
    We’d like to thank all those tradesmen:
    Plasterer GED PARSLEY from WOOLTON PLASTERING AND RENDERING
    Kitchen maker/manufacturer JUSTIN WHITTAM from BLACKCAT BESPOKE WOODWORK AND JOINERY
    Gas fitter JAMES COBURN from JWC PROPERTY SERVICES
    FRANK DINELEY from Merseyside Carpets
    TRAVIS PERKINS (Huyton) Branch Manager
    GAVIN LEDDER provided plastering materials
    CO OPERATIVE ELECTRICAL SHOP donated a cooker, extractor hood, gas hob, electric oven and undercounter fridge...
