DIY SOS "Children in Need Special 2022" 16 November 2022: Wednesday on BBC One 1

In this Children in Need special, the DIY SOS team joins forces with Radio 2 for a mega build in Leeds. Nick Knowles and his team set to work to transform a derelict site into a brand-new base for the young women’s charity, Getaway Girls. This is one of the show’s biggest projects ever and it’s a massive challenge to complete in just ten days.

Radio 2 are on a mission to recruit the hundreds of volunteers needed from their millions of listeners, while a brigade of the station’s presenters dons hard hats and high viz. Tea-time presenter Sara Cox, Scott Mills, Rylan, DJs Spoony and Trevor Nelson get stuck in, shovelling dirt, plastering and painting. Meanwhile across town the Getaway Girls choir are preparing a song to perform in front of the volunteers as a thank-you on reveal day.

Singer-song writer Emeli Sande coaches the girls through their nerves explaining she was a nervous teenager once too. Finally, the day of the reveal arrives. Zoe Ball arrives in town to broadcast the choir’s anthem live to the nation and to get a sneak preview of the spectacular new building.

Before, the Getaway Girls activities had been spread out across town using temporary spaces. Now the new building in Seacroft will provide a much-needed safe space with facilities all under one roof: a music and media studio, counselling and activity rooms, a creche, offices and a garden. Getaway Girls is a Children in Need funded charity. It’s been supporting young women across Leeds for 35 years; raising aspirations, providing opportunities and offering vital counselling and support.


This show is broadcast on BBC, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
