Military charities are particularly close to the heart of EBP’s Managing Director, Philip Brooke. With a son in the Royal Navy and two nephews in the Parachute Regiment, Philip feels strongly about supporting those serving or who have previously served our country.
Dig In are a charity that involve military, ex-military and their families in a practical way by offering free community gardening projects to allow people with shared experiences to come together and support each other.
Channel 5 decided to commission their building challenges programme, Construction Squad: Operation Homefront to help Dig In and their members to construct a Therapy Garden for veterans and their families…but they needed to enlist expert help. And that’s where EBP came in.
Channel 5 approached EBP to find a roofing solution for the wet weather they were experiencing…and were blown away by the results. They needed a product that would be weatherproof, waterproof, long-lasting and easy to use and our very own Frank Turner was called upon to explain how revolutionary new product, Firestone Rubber Cover™, meets the brief.
Firestone Rubber Cover™, only recently used a residential product, is one of EBP’s core products (along with natural roofing slates and channel drainage systems). Fast forward to thirty minutes into the episode and watch Frank, in his first starring TV role, explain just how this revolutionary new product works:
As you can see from the clip, Firestone Rubber Cover™ can be rolled out like a carpet (no blow torches necessary) and has a minimum life expectancy of a staggering fifteen years. For more information please call EBP on 01254 52244.
Dig In North West welcomes anyone from the military community to join them for gardening, a chat and a brew and hold sessions for:
• Veterans of any age or from any service
• Reservists between tours
• Those still serving but who are wounded, injured or sick
• Partners and parents
• The whole family by offering fun days for the children
