Nick Knowles and his team are coming to the Suffolk coast this summer to film for the hit BBC One show DIY SOS.

DIY SOS has circulated a poster on social media asking for local people to take part in a big build taking place from July 5 to 11 2023 in Lowestoft. 

They are looking for volunteers to transform the old rundown fire station in Clifton Road into a "fit-for-purpose performing arts school for people aged five to 85 - many of whom have additional learning difficulties."

The husband-and-wife run project began when their son, who was born with Down's Syndrome, had nowhere suitable to go when he left school.

The family has since been struck by tragedy, when both husband and son died within four months of each other.

Despite the family's grief, and the mum's recent cancer diagnosis, they "continue to pour love into the incredible community they have built".

The show is looking for tradespeople and suppliers to donate skills and materials, with hot meals provided. 

To join the build, you will need to attend the Trades Day on June 7 by emailing with your trade, availability and contact details.
