Following the riots in cities across England over the last few days, two architecture graduates, Lee Wilshire and Nick Varey have set up a venture to put property owners and tenants in touch with construction people willing to volunteer their help with informal advice, materials or labour.
The venture was inspired by the uplifting ‘#RiotCleanup’ (if strictly speaking not particularly effective)* campaign for which volunteers turned up in their hundreds to help clear up after the riots.
If you were affected by the riots and need help returning your property or business to its former state, you can post your requirements up on the RiotRebuild website, or get in touch with the service via Facebook or Twitter.
Architects, product suppliers, contractors, construction workers and others with useful skills can volunteer their support by the above means or by emailing Lee Wilshire at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d also like to encourage bloggers to blog about this, and if you have any time to offer the pair collating data and posting on their site please get in touch, I know Lee is trying to do this on top of a full time job!
