Avoca Sponsors RTE’s DIY SOS - The Big Build!

Apr 01, 2022

Avoca are very proud to be sponsors of the Home Edit for the new season of RTE’s DIY SOS - The Big Build. The first episode of the new season will be airing on RTE 1 this Sunday at 6.30pm - we can’t wait to tune in!

Hosted by the wonderful Baz Ashmawy, the new season sees Baz and his team of experts embark on more exciting home renovation projects across the country. Working to help to families in challenging circumstances with a home makeover to help improve their quality of life, we are delighted to be sponsors of the Home Edit this year, and can’t wait to see our throws and homewares take pride of place in each of the family’s homes this season.

Last December, we spoke to the show’s interior designer, Aoife Rhattigan, about how much she loves being a part of the show’s home makeover team:

‘We work with inspirational families whose challenges are so overwhelming that they do not have the resources to create the space that might make a real difference to how they cope. That's where the programme and sponsors like Avoca who donate items free of charge help in a really tangible way'.

While all the families on the show are quite different with different needs, Aoife says the accessories that transform their houses into homes are always the same. 'I always start with an Avoca throw. Nobody can resist its beautiful colours and textures so this always informs the basis of every Avoca shop I do for DIY SOS. From there, it really depends of the personalities on each family. In Avoca it's easy to find interesting items that reflect the style and personality of the homeowners.’.

We can’t wait to watch the show this Sunday, and hope you’ll tune in too!
