PTS take STEPS towards schoolroom makeover
The building is used by STEPS, a charity for families who have children with cerebral palsy and similar motor dysfunctions.

As the patron of STEPS, Rosemary Conley approached PTS to supply the products for the final phase of construction at St Botolph's Old School, featured on ITV.

Now complete, the brand new schoolroom offers bathroom and kitchen facilities in addition to a function room which will provide vital rental income.

The schoolroom's transformation was aired live on ITV on October 26.

Nicky Wood, marketing manager at PTS, said: 'When we were approached by Rosemary and the team working on the renovation, we didn't have to think twice about supplying some products to such a worthy cause.

'Even one of our customers has joined in, providing ceiling heaters for the facility. PTS is a Leicestershire-based company and as such, we are proud to be able to give something back to the local community. After the centre was nearly closed down in 2006, it is a great testament to the hard work undertaken by everyone involved that it is has now been fully refurbished.'

Rosemary Conley added: 'Phase two has transformed the exterior of the building as well as the schoolroom. I am overwhelmed by the interest and support we have received, and I would like to thank everyone for helping make this happen.'

PTS, part of the BSS group's business is the sales, marketing and distribution of heating, plumbing, pipeline, tools, industrial supplies and mechanical services equipment in the UK. The BSS Group turns over in excess of £1 billion, operates through 350 trading branches and employs over 4,600 people.
