VIY Woodwork Challenge

Volunteer It Yourself

VIY combines volunteering and DIY by challenging young people aged 14 – 24 to learn practical DIY  and building skills on the job.

Participants are mentored by professional tradespeople who volunteer their time.

With the help of two volunteers from Wickes, a group of students are taking part in a two day joinery project to construct wooden chairs, tables and planters.
