Mitsubishi Pencil Co. has lent its support to a ‘Children in Need’ project, which creates a safe haven for young people in Liverpool.
‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’ has transformed a rundown youth centre in a one-off special which will kick-start a series of programmes for the annual charity appeal.
The mammoth Big Build challenge was supported by a donation of 80 uni POSCA marker pens by Mitsubishi Pencil Co. for use by artists Dave Bain and Loch Ness during the transformation.
Working alongside a team of over 150 volunteers on site, the artists only had four days to complete a bespoke mural, working in building site conditions throughout.
“We are thrilled to have been involved in this fantastic makeover. Dave and Loch Ness used uni POSCA to create an extraordinary piece which we are looking forward to people seeing when the show airs.” commented Stuart Barker, marketing manager for Mitsubishi Pencil Co.
DIY SOS: The Big Build is expected to be aired on Thursday 10th November at 9pm on BBC One.
