Getting Involved with DIY SOS
Back in February 2020, we had had the pleasure of making and donating several items for the Chapman family whose home was unable to provide them with the facilities they needed. Mum, Sarah, and daughter, Suzanne, both have Myotonic Dystrophy, a long-term genetic disorder that affects muscle function. The family now depended on husband and Dad, Peter, who also cared for his brother Steve, who has autism, following on from the sad passing of his own Mother.
Sadly, after starting to build an extension to accommodate the growing needs of the family, Peter was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Alongside Suzanne’s and Sarah’s health deteriorating, Steve’s needs expanding and Peter struggling with finishing the work on their house, DIY SOS stepped in, calling on trades and businesses, to step up and help this deserving and inspiring family.
As the build commenced, the Just Fabrics team was hard at work, creating several soft furnishings including cushions, curtains and roman blinds, as part of this life-changing transformation.
